first in Germany were stopped for security checks 7 oldest nuclear power plants built before 1980.As a result, it was decided not to run them at all.The remaining nine reactors will be shut down by 2022.By this decision the government pushed numerous demonstrations of opponents of nuclear energy.
course, such a technologically advanced country can not do without electricity, so the decision on the one hand, to develop alternative sources of energy, on the other - to reduce electricity consumption by 10% by 2020 by improving the efficiency of its use and the introduction of new standardsfor electrical appliances.The development of alternative energy
sources will be allocated 9 trillion.euro.
One option for replacing nuclear power plants are wind eklektrostantsii.Wind energy - renewable, its processing does not harm nature.More cost-effective use of wind power to provide electricity to small objects, ascontrol the direction and force of the wind fails.This problem can be solved, and the accumulation and subsequent distribution of power to consumers.In Germany, in late 2010, windmills were given 8% of the total electricity generated.
Another promising direction - the transformation of solar energy into electricity.This method is publicly available and environmentally safe.Electricity can be accumulated in order to avoid interruptions in the supply at night and in cloudy weather.In order not to occupy the land under the solar panels, they are placed at a certain height, for example, on the roofs of buildings.Successfully solved the problem of the high cost of solar cells - the price is reduced by approximately 4% per year.The total power generated by solar power in Germany in 2010 amounted to almost 17.5 GW.
