Looking at these projections another way dulls my optimism. Supposing PVs make 10% of generation capacity then 90% will have to come from non-PVS. That suggests 13.5GW in 2012, 63GW in 2017, 180GW in 2020 and 900GW in 2030 from non-PVs. That's a lot of tidal, wind, biogas, or nuclear energy capacity to be built and operational if fossil fuels are to be excluded. What a challenge!

Excellent step ahead - hope all developing nations go in this direction and get rid of fossil fuel one day.

Simultanous working on oceans energy exploitation could be worked out in orer to achieve the above mentioned energy development targets much earlier than the projected dates. The project costs for harnessing oceans energy are lower. Harnessing energy from oceans is cheaper compared to other sources. This is very much possible. Interested parties to contact undersigned.
