Solar Energy : The most important supplier of energy for the earth is the sun. The whole of life depends on the sun’s energy. It is the starting point for the chemical and biological processes on our planet. At the same time it is the most environmentally friendly form of all energies, it can be used in many ways and it is suitable for all social systems.
In the core of the sun a fusion process takes place in which pairs of hydrogen nuclei are fused into helium nuclei. The energy thus released is radiated into space in the form of electromagnetic radiation. As the sun is 143 million km from the earth it radiates only a tiny fraction of its energy to the earth. In spite of this, the sun offers more energy in a quarter of an hour than the human race uses in a whole year.
The age of the sun is estimated by astrophysicists to be about 5 billion years. With a total life expectation of 10 billion years the sun will be available as an energy source for another 5 billion years. Hence from our human perspective the sun offers an unlimited life – Solar Power Plants
