Greenpeace Study 2009.

Produced by: Greenpeace International, Solar PACES and ESTELA

Year: 2009

Content: The Greenpeace study shows that the energy potential of solar-thermal power plants is enormous. Solar power plants with an overall capacity of 1,500 gigawatts could be built by 2050. These could generate 7,800 terawatt-hours of clean electricity annually – that’s three times more power than all nuclear power plants in the world combined. Because the solar-thermal power plants would replace coal-burning power plants above all, the annual carbon dioxide savings could rise to 4.7 billion tons by 2050.
