Solar Generation : electricity for over 1 billion people and 2 million jobs by 2020 – A report by EPIA and Greenpeace

Publication - 21 novembre, 2003
By the time the generation born today reaches adulthood in 2020 solar energy could easily provide energy to over a billion people globally and provide 2.3 million full-time jobs. By 2020 solar can provide a projected 276 terawatt hours of energy. Even if we double current consumption rates that would be equivalent to supplying 30% of Africa's energy needs, or 10% of OECD European demand by 2020. This is equal to 1% of the projected global demand.
