With the development of the times, coexistence with the environment is something we need to pay attention to at this stage. With the advent of the solar crisis, clean energy is now a more respected energy source, and business opportunities for solar products have also been discovered. Solar is a well-deserved player.
By now we are all aware of the dramatic increase in the cost of living. Prices for food, energy, housing, etc. have soared, causing great hardship for many. With inflation set to hit 15% by 2023, our fight is far from over.
Looking ahead, the gas price crisis is fueling what the world already needs: Solar power will prevail in this day and age. Learn about solar energy’s role in the current energy crisis at SOUOP.
What caused the European energy crisis?
Natural gas prices in Europe have been surging as global demand has increased. While this is true for most commodities, natural gas is a bigger problem.
This is due to a rebound in the global economy as countries lift COVID-19 restrictions and fully reopen their economies. With increased demand after the pandemic hit, the market is now competing.
The current drop in supply has contributed to the energy crisis as Europe relies on Russian shipments of natural gas, including crude oil and refined petroleum products, coal, steel, and iron. As a result, supplies of these products have been slashed, sending prices soaring.
Increased demand in Asia is also affecting energy prices, which are expected to rise by 60% by 2040 – and only about 15% of that energy is renewable!
Globally, this growing demand will cause prices to climb year after year, especially in times of crisis, as we have seen over the past few months.
Looking to the future
Due to the current energy crisis, governments around the world are pouring more money into sustainable alternatives for a more economically and environmentally sustainable future. One such option is solar power.
The global impact of solar energy
With energy bills rising again later this year, homeowners worldwide are looking to the sky to ease the strain on their budgets by installing solar panels.
Ballymacarney Solar PV Park will be one of the first solar farms in Ireland.
Due to be completed later this year, Ballymacarney will provide electricity to more than 40,000 homes and help Ireland succeed in meeting its ambitious target of 70% renewable energy by 2030.
Across mainland Greece, in April this year, Hellenic Petroleum (which is currently switching to green energy) powered Europe’s largest bifacial solar farm. The Kozani solar park cost 130 million euros to install and will provide energy to around 75,000 households in the region.
In addition to solar power, governments and homeowners worldwide are exploring many other renewable energy sources, such as wind, hydroelectric and geothermal.
However, for standard homes located in mild to moderate climates, solar power is arguably the most efficient and accessible option available to home buyers.
While solar panel installation is initially expensive, there are a variety of options that can help buyers transition to renewable energy.
After installing solar panels; your energy bills will drop. It is estimated to save up to €600 per year, and possibly more as electricity prices continue to rise – potentially increasing the value of your home by 4.1%.

Benefits of Solar Energy
In addition to saving you money, going solar can help support a more sustainable future. Renewable energy is currently at the forefront of global development, with more sustainable alternatives becoming available and built every week.
Currently, up to 43.1% of the UK’s energy consumption relies on renewable energy, with the aim of achieving zero net emissions by 2050. In Europe and around the world, the Paris Agreement, and the Kyoto Protocol have established similar protocols of targets, as well as individual country targets.
