The race to reduce our reliance on fossil fuel dependence is dominated by the progress of solar power.
Here's a bar graph race showing how little of the world' energy needs was generated by solar power just a little as 29 years ago.
This race shows the progress of China's acceleration in their adoption for renewable energy from a small player to the world's leading solar generator.
As can be seen, Australia lags the rest of the world in terms of total solar generation. We certainly have a lot of catching up to do.
Some say that comparison to countries such as USA and China are unfair due to their GPD and population being more than 10x larger.
A fairer comparison is to measure the solar generation per capita (Total solar generation / population).
This new chart below gives Australia a fighting chance of being compared with the rest of the world.
