My Interview for Solar Power World

May 30th, 2012 by  


 
Frank Andorka of Solar Power World interviewed me yesterday on various topics related to CleanTechnica and solar power. If you’re interested in listening to the interview, here it is:

(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. 😀
