FAQs about Solar Energy

6. What are the main countries producing solar energy?

It is not easy to obtain an exact statistic, because anyone can install photovoltaic panels on the roof of their house and generate electricity on their own, which makes it difficult to know the amount of electricity generated or contributed to the network. However, for an approximation, these are the ten countries that produce the most electrical energy from solar energy:

  1. China (130.4 GW).
  2. United States (85.3 GW).
  3. Japan (63.3 GW).
  4. India (57.4 GW).
  5. Germany (48.4 GW).
  6. Italy (22.6 GW).
  7. United Kingdom (14.2 GW).
  8. France (12.8 GW).
  9. Australia (12.2 GW).
  10. Pakistan (10 GW).

Solar energy, a big bet against climate change

Solar energy is one that uses light or heat from the sun to generate electricity or produce heat. Photovoltaic solar panels convert sunlight into electricity through a process called photoelectric. There are millions of people who already use electricity generated by solar energy. The world is aware of the importance of the transition towards a sustainable economy, based on low greenhouse gas emissions to curb global warming and therefore climate change. However, there is still a long way to go to significantly reduce the use of fossil fuels such as coal, gas and oil…


Solar energy, a clean, inexpensive and inexhaustible source

Solar energy along with wind energy and electric cars, forms a powerful trio to face global warming and climate change. Solar energy is in direct line with the Paris Agreement, based on the non-emission of greenhouse gases and the replacement of fossil fuels with clean energies.
