Freiburg, Summer 2011 (
The comfortable weather of history weeks lured many exterior. But not just those searching for sun benefited from the stunning weather, also solar powered energy plants managed specifically really and delivered an important share into power. Graphs according to data from the European Electricity Exchange (EEX) show that, with regards to the climate, over midday up to 13.2 Gigawatts (GW) of solar energy was delivered to the general public grid. That corresponds to your net output power of up to ten atomic power flowers.
Solar energy plants thus relieve the standard energy flowers and considerably lessen the peak energy demand. Currently, in Germany, only four associated with 17 atomic energy plants are operating, therefore solar power plants perform an important role in a secure power. They absorb the top lots during the day, therefore permitting the conventional energy flowers to operate with an almost continual power from 7am to 10pm.
The numbers 1 and 2 program the in the pipeline and real power manufacturing from solar power, wind and traditional power plants on Sunday and Monday the 8th and 9th of might 2011. These figures reveal how well the predicted and real production agrees.
Figure 3 shows the electrical energy production over 1 week. Listed here figure shows the production over a month. All numbers show that solar powered energy is a reliable producer hence it can deliver valuable top load power. One could in addition observe that every day during this week the entire midday top load had been included in solar power. The traditional peak load power plants had been dramatically relieved.
According to Prof. Dr. Bruno Burger from Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE in Freiburg the numbers show that contribution of solar power is quite foreseeable and regular, revealing no rapid modifications, as can happen for instance, with wind power. “The explanation is the huge spatial circulation associated with solar power plants, where environment conditions, such as going clouds, tend to be averaged out completely”.
