Worldwide, countries have made commitments to significantly increase their share of electricity generated from renewable sources by 2020. Sulzer Pumps supports fulfilling these targets with tailor-made pumping solutions and services for concentrated solar power generation, geothermal power generation, as well as novel concepts for the storage of electrical energy produced from renewable sources.
Several renewable sources will contribute to meeting the expected demand for clean power. Most scenarios predict notable growth of electricity produced from wind, solar, biomass, and geothermal. Of these, solar power has the highest theoretical potential, as the sun provides the earth with as much energy every hour as human civilization uses every year.
