Comments Off on Scientists Link Somalia’s Devastating 2011 Drought With Climate Change

Comments Off on Denmark Hits 200 Megawatt Solar Capacity Goal 8 Years Ahead of Schedule

Lets face it – its rare we see a government goal reached on time, let alone early. Not too long ago, the  Danish Government  announced an ambitious goal to reach 200 megawatts of solar capacity by 2020, and as of last week, they have already met it! The country is currently installing an average of 36 megawatts of solar panels each month. At this rate, their resulting capacity by 2020 will be over five times the original goal. Denmark ‘s power is currently 20% supplied by renewable sources, and the nation has set a goal of sourcing 100% of its energy from renewable sources by 2050.
