It is the renewable energy that is given by taking advantage of the radiation that comes from the sun in the form of light and heat.
The sun produces an average daily energy of 4wkh per m² , which is converted by:
A 100W vial lit for 8 hours
2 showers with hot water
Only with 2% of the solar radiation the deserts receive could the entire planet be provided with energy.
By the year 2100 it is estimated that 70% of the energy consumed worldwide is of solar origin.
The arica and Parinacota region has the potential to become the capital of solar energy :
It has a solar installation capacity of 43,000 MW which could supply electricity throughout the country.
It is the energy released by the sun, which when there is:
80% hits the ground
20% is absorbed into the atmosphere or returned to space
30-60% is reflected towards space through clouds
5-20% is absorbed by clouds
The Earth is heated by radiation of the energy it receives, emitted from the ground.
Only a small part is heated by absorption.
