US and China to Become Solar Energy Powerhouses
Although Germany is still the world's solar energy producer it is believed that Germany will be overtaken by the United States in 2013 and China not long after. The two countries have already been laying out plans on how to expand their solar-power based operations. It is expected that they will install 5 gigawatts worth of solar installations between 2009 and 2011. Both countries' solar power industries are expected to continue to expand at least until they begin to outproduce Germany.
