Solar for a CO2-neutral balance sheet
In 2008, Eduard Mathai GmbH installed a solar power system at its Hannover 2008 to the end of the year.
It is expected to produce more than 20,000 kWh per year, thus helping to achieve a CO2-neutral energy balance.
Solar energy is not only easy to use
It is also the most energy-rich of all renewable energies. Even a small fraction of the light energy reaching Earth would be sufficient to meet world energy needs. What makes solar energy more attractive is its cleanliness. Emissions are virtually zero, and no dangerous radiation is released. This makes it highly suitable for tackling the current climate problems.
Sustainable development - no growth at the expense of the environment
For many years, we burned fossil fuels or generated our energy need from nuclear fission. The consequences for our environment are catastrophic global warming, the greenhouse effect, melting poles and glaciers, scarcity of resources, pollution of the oceans and the air, and the unsafe storage of highly radioactive material. Humenkind is slowly becoming aware that the consumption of non-renewable energy sources and splitting of uranium atoms is expensive and dangerous.
