In the past year, according to the European Association for the photovoltaic production worldwide was commissioned a number of solar panels, which provided the estimated production of 30 GW of clean energy. With this the total capacity of all installed solar panels in the world has finally exceeded 101 GW. These results confirm that the "green" trend in the power industry is strengthening its reputation as a global market of eco-energy grows stronger every year, despite the difficult economic situation.
Experts Association are proud to say that 10 years ago it was difficult to imagine that one day mankind will overcome the figure of 100 GW. As in previous years, are now leaders in the use fotogalvanichekih elements for production of clean energy are the European countries. In 2012 they were able to increase its capacity to 17 GW, which is good, but in 2011 managed to reach values of 23 GW.
With regard to statistics on other continents, Asia, China and Japan in the lead with 3.5 GW and 2 GW, respectively, in North America, the U.S. and its 3.2 GW of energy received from the sun. In the world ranking of countries where these advanced technologies have become a way of life, the first place is occupied by Germany (7.6 GW), which has the largest production capacity in relation to the established and functioning solar panels. For Germany, followed by Italy, China, USA and Japan.
