Solar thermal power generation! Statistics in the first half of the year – Sohu technology in the past 6 months, the United Kingdom for the first time to achieve the goal of generating more than solar thermal power. Although the results are encouraging, the coming autumn and winter season is the real test. Solar energy is an important form of clean energy. The British government has been investing in solar power for many years, and the cost of solar power has fallen. The result is a powerful riposte to questions about the high cost of solar power. The government’s vigorous development of solar energy has achieved good results. Data from CarbonBrief, a climate change analysis site, shows that the UK’s solar power generation has exceeded the power generation capacity of thermal power plants in the past 6 months. According to Carbon Brief reported that the UK’s solar power generation of about 6 billion 964 million kwh, higher than the thermal power generating capacity of 6 billion 342 million kwh of up to 10%. Chart shows the share of solar power and thermal power in the UK market, orange for solar power, gray for thermal power generation. (Brief: Carbon) that is, solar power has supplied 5.2% of Britain’s electricity demand, compared with a figure of about $4.7%. The analysis shows that this trend is due to seasonal changes. In the spring and summer, the country’s electricity demand is low, so it can rely more on solar energy to meet people’s demand for electricity. As can be seen from the above chart, the solar energy output in 2016 was significantly higher than that of thermal power generation in the year of May, and the advantage was maintained in the first quarter of the year from June to September. In addition, the UK solar installed capacity is also rising from 2015 in early 6 million to the current rise of 12 million kilowatts, generating capacity increased by more than the same period last year by 26%. Winter is approaching but this does not mean that the solar victory in britain. With the arrival of autumn and winter, the temperature will be gradually reduced, sunshine time will be shortened. Therefore, in the face of the inevitable growth of energy demand, solar energy is difficult to maintain their advantage in the next few days. At the same time, the government has shown signs of slowing subsidies for solar energy. Last December, the British government once again lowered subsidies for solar power. Among them, the roof mounted solar panels subsidies reduced by 65%. A series of measures have marked the second phase of the renewable energy obligation act. It is estimated that this policy change will lead to unemployment of about 18 thousand and 700 people in the solar industry.
