Solar energy will solve the energy needs of 1 billion people by 2020
According to relevant information, a recent market research report by Greenpeace and the European Photonics Federation shows that by 2020, solar energy will solve the energy needs of about 1 billion people.
The report pointed out that the world's solar power generation will increase from the current 270 MW to 54,000 megawatts by 2020.
The rapid development of the solar industry will solve the employment problem of about 2.3 million people, but the premise must be that the relevant parties provide sufficient favorable development conditions for this.
Greenpeace and the European Optoelectronics Federation point out that many large European companies are now poised to take off, and once they receive long-term financial guarantees from the government, they will immediately make large-scale investments in solar power. Many European governments have also clearly stated that they will vigorously promote the development of solar energy and cancel many previous restrictions on the development of solar energy.
