Energia solar na Alemanha: evolução

Just weeks after the solar industry installed the one millionth system in Germany, the country’s solar trade association announced that the technology accounted for 3% of total energy generation in 2011 — increasing 60% over 2010 to 18.6 terawatt-hours (18.6 billion kilowatt-hours.)
Even with changes to the feed-in tariff that have reduced solar photovoltaic installations compared with previous boom years, the sector was still the fastest growing among all other renewable energy sectors in 2011, according to preliminary figures.
This follows data released last week showing that renewable energy accounted for 19.9 percent of electricity production in the country this year, growing 16.4 percent over 2010. Meanwhile, overall energy use in the country fell 4.8% due to warmer temperatures and increasing efficiency efforts, further boosting the value of solar generation.

A Toyota está investindo em carros sustentáveis. O Toyota NS4 é um novo veículo conceito Plug-In Hybrid, que é bem mais "green" e ecologicamente correto. Vai ser exposto pela primeira vez semana que vem no Salão de Detroit (NAIAS auto show), durante a conferência coletiva da Toyota, terça-feira, 10 de Janeiro às 9:45 da manhã, horário de Brasília. http://youtu.be/dTa9KW0vTS4
