South Africa wants to install 5 GW of solar energy. The African country aims to become one of the major powers in the field of solar energy with 5 GW.

The investment would cost approximately 21,000 million euros and will require a combination of next-generation solar technologies in conjunction with solar panels and large mirrors, which are located in the Northern Cape region. Thus, it would take the peculiaridsd climate of the area, especially sunny and dry season.

With this plan not only seeks to satisfy up to 10% of the country’s energy demands, but also significantly reduce CO2 emissions, as currently over 90% of electricity is obtained through power plants operating based on burning coal.

It is expected that the initial phase of this project is completed by the end of 2012, where you can collect up to 1 GW of electricity.

Electric vehicle with lithium batteries do not emit CO2 or damage the environment if the electricity comes from renewables such as wind, solar photovoltaic and solar thermal or thermal. Wind turbines can supply electricity to electric vehicles in the future will also serve to store and regulate the electricity intermittent wind energy sector.
