On a average, the sun daily sends to earth 10.15th power kWh (one quadrillion kilowatt-hours), that is to say, a quantity of energy comparable to the sum total of all the energy resources in oil, coal, uranium and natural gas at present known to exist on our planet. Each square kilometer on which the sun shines each day gets a quantity of energy equivalent to that of an ordinary atominc bomb. However topical atomic energy may be, scientist agree that solar is that of the future, since it will last as long as there is sun.
1 Heliovalaics-power plants.
2. Sources: thermonuclear, solar, geotherman=what we have already
3. Hydro-electricity, nuclear fission, as opposed to nuclear fusion
4. Nuclear fission
5. Nuclear fusion
Solar Energy can be utilized in a direct form
Solar energy can be utilized in an indirect form by exploring solar cells made of semiconductors (Silicon, geranium, etc)…Home electrical energy can now be supplied directly by the sun and soon solar panels will be mass produced. Man is no longer slave to oversized machinery.
…costs of silicon surfaces; solar energy does not appear to be any cheaper than hydroelectrical power at present, but it remains a prime future energy source.
(pg.41)..territories on either side of the tropics might be ideal for solar installations. Sahara, Libya, all the Sudanese zone as far as Ethiopia and the large part of the southern African regions.
