renewable energy solar -Renewable Energy in Germany | Fully Charged

November 24, 2012 – 12:30 am

Robert Llewellyn ** provides information on renewable energy in Germany. LIKE fully charged on Fully Charged Podcast Robert before talks with the government official Dr. Silke Karcher, who directs the division ‘EU Affairs and bilateral cooperation Environment and Energy ‘. Discuss Germany’s future plans for energy, resulting in the abandonment of nuclear energy and go into the wind, gas and solar energy. It is then down to Leipzig to see a Juwi Energy Park, where it is given a tour around a large solar power plant by Sylvia Hamm. This produces a considerable amount of energy to the grid German. Juwi Energy OF FULLY CHARGED: Fully Charged is an online show hosted by Robert Llewellyn (Red Dwarf, Scrapheap Challenge, Carpool), sponsored by British Gas: Looking After Your World. In this series, Robert will discuss why we need to change the way we think about energy consumption. Will take a look at the latest electric cars available in the market [Volvo, Ford, Peugeot, Renault and Nissan] and also the different forms of renewable energy [wind and solar]. Video Rating: 4 / 5

  2. Guys, making your own home energy does not have to be hard (I used to think it did). I’ll give you some advice right now. Look for a alternative home energy known as Xobotano Home Energy (search on google). Seriously, Xobotano Home Energy has save large sums of my money. I probably should not even be mentioning it cause I don’t want a bunch of other guys out there running the same “game” but whatever, I am just in a great mood today so I’ll share the wealth haha.

  3. Let me add to that: Adding more renewable energy and shutting down nuclear power plants were two different acts. The addition of more renewable energy was long-term planned by the gouvernment while the shutting down of the power plants was a purely populistic decision after the Fukushima incident because a bunch of uneducated people here got panic.

  4. I apologize for the guy who apologizes for the English of his fellow Germans…

  5. Hello there! Thanks a lot for this useful video. By the way, I notice many people keep on talking about Xobotano Home Energy (do a search on google), but I’m not sure if it’s good. Have you thought about this alternative home energy known as Xobotano Home Energy? I’ve heard several great things about it.

  6. This is great! I love the city of Freiburg, Germany for it’s eco-conscious spirit! And the world’s most environmentally friendly private hotel is there (with solar panels on its roof as just one of the ways it has gone green)!

  8. This still surprise me, how lots of people have no idea about Xobotano Home Energy (search on google), even though lots of people save a large amount of money because of this alternative energy. Thanks to my cousin who told me about Xobotano Home Energy, I’ve slashes my electric bill by 75% in under 1 month

  9. I am interested in clean energy. I like this video. Especially Dr. Silke Karcher.

  10. when i say ‘we in britain’ i obviously mean our tight- fisted government!

  11. Already subscribed! I was just confused — I thought the video was a little older than it was, so I thought there should have been another posted. Keep up the great work, love the program.

  12. Feel free. You need to buy the airfield and the parts.

  13. No. Solar drove up the cost of to the government due to a fixed tariff being paid to the producers. They have reduced the tariff in order to reduce the cost of electricity.

    This was necessary to kick-start the use of solar.

    Your FUD is pathetic.

  14. The only differences I could pick out from this video between the UK and Germany in terms of renewable investment is that Germany is a forward-thinking company, and the UK has a lot of people with their heads up their arse who like to complain about things they know nothing about.

  15. The old incumbents were some of the first to look into renewables. These people are not stupid.

    By UncleKennybobs on Nov 24, 2012

  16. She says early on that solar drove up the cost of electric then they lowered the tarriff. It seems it’s only profitable becasue of taxpayers. Another video says the solar panel owners get 50cents per kwh. That’s only 5 x more than the typical rate in American homes of about 8-10 cents. Good deal? Recent studies show panels take 30 years to produce the enrgy required to make themselves. How is this sustainable? I own panels, but, never asked the taxpayer to supliment my costs. The nerve.

  17. why don’t we in britain do the same with our disused airfields?

  18. phwaaa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha, i didn’t even notice. very German beer fest.

  19. i thought they said the closed down all their older stations? never the less you gotta love the Germans. at least they are giving it a go, who else is putting in a real efort.

  20. heh, we get that too with any Australian documentaries not made by Austrailans. Nothing but Didgeridoos and Kangaroos :)

  21. It looks like they need some sheep.

  22. In perspective… The Drax coal power complex in the UK is 3,960MW capacity (composed of 6 generators of 660MW each). This is 117x as much power output as the solar plant in the video (which on the day of filming was putting out 33.75MW). Drax serves only 7% of UK demand for electricity. So the size of solar plant seen would service about 0.06% of UK demand… Better to use the area on people’s roofs, as you are going to need that much space for PV!

  23. Can You imagine ? Italy, Spain and Grece have so much sun 24/7/365 ….and are the countries where solar panels are the moste expansine in tho whole planet. SHAME !

    By mptrax on Nov 24, 2012

  24. No respect to Germany for phasing out Nuclear. Making everyone’s electricity more expensive so people can profit from clean energy isn’t good policy..

  25. Thanks!
