Global solar PV capacity reach 100 GW
According to Ecoseed (via Solar Feeds) : ” The cumulative solar photovoltaic capacity of the world crossed the 100-gigawatt milestone in 2012 (…) according to figures from the European Photovoltaic Industry Association.
” The solar association also noted that the world’s PV installations can now cut 53 million tons of greenhouse gas emissions a year. In 2012 approximately 30 GW of new generating capacity was plugged, around the same level as in 2011.”
These are staggering figures showing that not only does cleantech work, it is also growing at a fantastic rate all around the world and this despite the economic hard times.
