Why choose Solar Energy?
Harnessing the power of the sun may ultimately prove the best way to sustain economic and social growth without damaging the environment.
Concerns about climate change, together with the need to secure energy supplies for the future, mean that the energy chain must become progressively decarbonised as we move forward into the 21st century.
In a world which is still dominated by fossil fuels more and more people are not only demanding access to energy, but also asking for clean energy. Solar thermal power systems are able to meet those individual demands for a safe, reliable and clean form of energy all over the world.
Consumers using solar thermal energy contribute to the rescue of the environment by choosing clean energy, and ensure remarkable cost saving on their daily energy consumption and an increasing independence from their power utility supplier.
Renewable energy now provides an increasing proportion of the world’s energy demand. Nevertheless, the continuous growth of renewable energy encounters some great restrictions. Why? Because many renewable energy forms are still commercially unproven and expensive if compared to traditional fuels. Government support is needed to make them a priority but this is not enough.
An immediate challenge for Calpak is to 'build a case' for solar thermal energy; to develop efficient and cost effective solar products that can be successful even in a competitive, subsidy-free market.
