ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the efforts of Germany into the renewable energy arena. Jeffrey Michel, an electrical engineer and energy researcher, says Germany now accounts for about half the world's solar production and is proving that going green can be cost effective and generate positive economic spinoffs, too. It is stated that solar is only one element of Germany's thriving, 13-billion dollars alternative energy industry, which also prominently features wind and biomass energy.
