Germany can fulfil entire energy demand with renewables in 10-15 years – report via Clean Energy Wire

Germany’s entire energy demand can be met through renewable energies alone within the next ten to fifteen years, according to a new report by the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin). The prerequisite for this is that German expansion targets for both wind and solar energy are greatly increased, the authors write. Onshore wind power will play a particularly important role, according to DIW, which is also calling for the expansion of wind farms – especially in the south of the country. “100 percent renewable energies are technically possible and economically efficient – and above all urgently needed to be able to achieve the European climate protection goals,” says Claudia Kemfert, Head of the Energy, Transport, Environment Department at DIW Berlin. According to the calculations, not only the electricity demand, but the entire energy demand in this country could be secured with renewables. To reach full energy supply through renewable energies, the EU, federal and state levels must work together more closely and in a better coordinated manner, especially when it comes to grid planning, the authors write. They also argued that integration into the European electricity grid is necessary to guarantee supply security. At both the European and the national level, current grid development plans include a high share of fossil natural gas power generation as well as nuclear power. “These are the shadows of yesterday’s energy policy – now we urgently need to switch to tomorrow,” Kemfert said.

Germany’s 2030 goal is to reach a share of 65 percent renewables in the power mix. But due to a possible quick phase-out of more fossil power capacity, industry representatives and environmental groups alike have called for ramping up the goal to at least 70 percent by the end of the decade.

    Solar Energy In IRAN
    Throughout history, man has made many uses of light and solar energy .

    As technology advances, so does the use of solar energy.

    In the ancient architecture of Iran, the use of solar energy can be seen in many buildings, which shows that solar energy has been very important since ancient times.

    The use of solar energy in buildings can be one of the most important advantages of a building today.

    Solar ( Solar energy ) is used in many industries and many companies and big companies to reduce their costs of solar energy as they use.

    What is solar energy?
    But what is solar energy and how does using it help us?

    Solar energy is one of the most important human resources in the solar system.

    This energy is one of the cleanest and most accessible sources of renewable energy in the world.

    Solar energy, just like other energies, can be used both directly and indirectly.

    Solar energy can be easily converted into different energy models such as heat or electricity.

    But to convert this energy into electricity, you need equipment such as: solar panel , solar controller charge and..

    Solar energy can be an important and key tool for modern homes . Homes that get their energy from solar energy are both more beneficial to the planet in terms of producing less environmental pollution and producing their own energy.

    Why use solar energy?
    First, the use of solar energy is free, and we can use this energy to minimize our costs.
    Secondly, the earth is being destroyed day by day and the life span of the earth is decreasing day by day with the production of fossil waste. So it is better to use sustainable energies.
    Solar energy in Iran
    Many countries have long used this infinite energy and minimized their consumption of fossil fuels.

    Solar energy in Iran has also gained a lot of fans in recent years, and we see many buildings during the day that are storing solar energy.

    Iran is a country that has sunny weather in different parts of the country, about 300 days a year, so using solar energy in Iran is a very easy and reasonable task.

    A few examples of versatile solar products
    We have offered many solar products in Smart Secret, here are some examples of these products.

    Solar CCTV Camera
    Solar CCTV camera is one of the most widely used and practical products in the solar energy subset.

    Solar CCTV cameras can be used in gardens and spaces where electrical wiring is not possible or where electricity is expensive.

    Solar camera is one of the most important human products in the field of solar energy, which allows monitoring of places without the need for electricity.
