My Interview for Solar Power World
May 30th, 2012 by Zachary Shahan
(Warning: I don’t do much public speaking or participate in many interviews these days — so, I’m a little out of practice and feel like I fumbled over a number of key points)
As I noted in the comments below the Solar Power World post, I stated something a little unclearly in there. To clear that up: German solar electricity production at noon has passed the 20% mark, getting up to at least 25% some days, as you can see in the story above. (Of course, it’s still a ways off from 20% of total annual electricity production.)
(Renewable energy production in Germany as a whole, however, is far above 20% — was around 47% in the month of April — and just wind and solar together have gone over 20%.)
Hope that’s all clear now.
