The World’s Best Solar Power Regions are the Coldest Locales

Comments Off on The World’s Best Solar Power Regions are the Coldest Locales

Large expanses of desert have received most of the attention when it comes to large solar power installations, but a new study published in Environmental Science & Technology says that the world’s coldest regions are actually some of the best places for solar power generation. The study found that the Himalaya Mountains, the Andes and Antarctica are some of the most ideal solar power locations, with the ability to produce more energy per hectare than the world’s deserts .  The Himalayas could provide power to China, while the polar regions see 24 hours of sunlight a day for half the year. The study used weather data to account for any decrease in solar cell output due to freezing temperatures, snow fall and transmission losses when calculated the areas’ power generation potential. Research bases on Antarctica already successfully make use of solar and wind power for electricity, but transmitting power generated at the poles or deep in the Himalayas to places towns and cities will likely prove to be the biggest hurdle to these solar power “hot spots.” via Fast Company

Photo by rengber via Flickr CC We’ve been following the controversial bill that would ban the sale of shark fins in California. Earlier this week, the Senate voted with the bill, helping get the bill one step closer to becoming law. AB 376 will ban on the sale, trade, possession, and distribution of shark fins in the state — but it must be signed by Governor Jerry Brown by October 9, 2011 in order to become law. … Read the full story on TreeHugger
