Solar for Desert

If just 0.3 per cent of the Saharan desert was filled with solar panels it would provide all of Europe with clean energy.
In summer 2009 a conglomurate of 20 German companies including E.ON - agreed a deal which will see plants spring up across northern Africa which will evetually produce 100 gigawatts of clean energy. The power is initially planned to be transported to Europe along high-voltage DC lines across the Med - but could one day be transported wirelessly. Two weeks ago the world bank agreed to pay £5.5billion for another project to build 11 solar units which will produce one gigawatt by 2015. This will benefit north African states like Tunisia, Algeria, Egypt as well as the Middle East. The excess heat from the solar panels will also be used to convert sea water into drinkable water for people and use in farming.If they made solar panels out of old reality TV contestants then this scheme would solve ALL of the world's problems in one go.

Dear All,The ideal works! Solar Power besides producing green energy, also green desert with new plants on dry desert waste land. In time to come we shall see desert transformation into GREEN PLANET replacing Amazon Jungle!
