Completely sustainable, solar energy is an alternative that is becoming increasingly attractive, thanks to the extensive technological development in recent years. Thus, several projects have been announced worldwide, and several countries and companies have shown a real interest in what is possibly the energy generation of the future.
Large nations around the world, such as the United States, China, and India, have been expanding their solar energy exponentially in recent years both in their installed production capacity and in the use of this energy source compared to other sources. Globally, investments in clean energy already amount to hundreds of billions of dollars. In Germany, the goal is already to supply 100% of energy consumed by means of renewable sources by the year 2050.
Investments in solar energy bring numerous benefits for society as a whole, such as reducing pollution, increasing quality of life, and growing the economy.
Storage and battery technologies are also becoming increasingly abundant, which guarantees even more benefits in generating and storing solar energy. It is no exaggeration to say that, soon, coal will completely replaced by solar and wind energy, the two main ways to generate clean energy.
The days of extensive use of fossil fuels, gasoline, and diesel to supply cars and trucks are also numbered. Countries like the United Kingdom, France, andGermany already have plans to abandon these vehicles and have announced a sales ban on them.
The alternative is electric cars, which are becoming increasingly viable and present a future in which the nightmare of pollution is no longer part of life in large cities. This huge demand for clean and sustainable energy needs to be combined with the creation of more projects to use the sun as a generating source. The change in the global energy matrix is a reality for everyone searching for a better, greener, and healthier world.
In May 2020, Tesla publicly announced that it is already be preparing to produce large-scale, long-life, low-cost batteries, which would put its vehicles at parity with combustion vehicles. This progress contributes massively to an accelerated transition from the more than 1 billion cars in circulation on the planet to electric vehicles, exponentially increasing the need for electric energy from renewable sources.
In this scenario of exponential increase in energy demand, it is evident how clean, infinite solar energy is, in fact, the energy of the future.
