Solar power

Man installs a solar panel on a roof top. Copyright: TransFairTo date, solar ener­gy has covered on­ly a very small por­tion of the global energy require­ment. In 2007 it deli­vered appro­xi­mately 0.6 per cent of the power consu­med in Germany. Yet solar power has huge potential for the future. And in remote parts of the world in particular, it is already often the best form of energy supply available today.

The BMZ supports projects for solar energy use within the framework of Financial Cooperation. This includes for instance the financing of photovoltaic systems supplying remote villages with electricity. Technical Cooperation measures include for example the delivery of advisory services to public authorities and institutions on market development issues, and the provision of expert training.
