Using solar energy can create thousands of new jobs and jobs, as well as grow the economy 20 times faster than it already is. On the other hand, it can make it easier for countries to reach their carbon emission targets, and can provide significant savings in government expenditures.

So how are some countries in the world experimenting with solar energy?


Hospital Using Solar Energy – Bihar, India


Tripolia Hospital , located in Bihar, India , uses a steam-generating condensed solar power (CSP) system to sterilize hospital equipment and wash clothes. Solar energy is also used for building and outdoor lighting by generating electricity.

Tesla Cars – Freemont, California


Tesla engineers, led by CEO Elon Musk, are working on a solar-powered car roof . Musk announced the idea on Twitter last November and said it would be a feature that could be used in future Tesla cars.

Solar Road – Normandy, France


France became the first country in the world to develop a solar-powered road and test whether the roads are worth pursuing. 2,880 solar panels were placed on this road with an average length of 1 km. It is estimated that sufficient energy will be generated from this road to provide street lighting to the small village of Tourouvre-au-Perche. If this project is successful, it is stated that France will continue to build another 1000 km of these roads.

Wireless solar power from space? – Tokyo, Japan


Scientists at the Japan Space Exploration Agency (JAXA) were the first to successfully transmit energy wirelesly. Having managed to carry 1.8 kilowatts (enough electricity to run a water heater) 55 meters from the receiver, JAXA stated that these trials will continue. Although enough electricity has been transported to power a water heater for now, solar panels to be placed in space could provide enough energy to the whole world in the future.

Harvest Trees – Espoo, Finland


Finland is working on a way to use trees to generate solar power instead of cutting trees to generate energy . The country, which makes patterned solar panels for the leaves on the tree, plans to store the energy provided by these trees and then use it as electricity. Here is a video that gives more information about the techniques used .

Solar power is one of many beautiful ways to help us continue to protect our planet and grow the economy. Fortunately, there are many projects that continue to be developed in the world on solar energy.
