The first to kick the Carbon habit.

There are still many countries that are hesitant to rely on wind and solar energy as a replacement for their dirt carbon habits. This is not the case for Germany which predicts that it could kick its carbon habit by 2050 using today’s technology.

If one of the world best industrialised nations is able to beat it’s carbon habit and source all it’s energy requirements from renewable sources, should there be any doubt that other countries would not be able to do this too.

Germany could derive all of its electricity from renewable energy sources by 2050 and become the world’s first major industrial nation to kick the fossil fuel habit, the Federal Environment Agency said on Wednesday.

Germany is already a global leader in renewable energy and exports green technology around the world.

It gets 16 percent of its electricity from wind, solar and other renewable sources — triple the five percent level it had 15 years ago.

“A complete conversion to renewable energy by 2050 is possible from a technical and ecological point of view,” said Jochen Flasbarth, president of the Federal Environment Agency as he presented a new study to journalists on Wednesday.

“It’s a very realistic target based on technology that already exists — it’s not a pie-in-the-sky prediction,” he added, saying the timetable could even be accelerated with new technology breakthroughs and a greater public acceptance. Thanks to its Renewable Energy Act, Germany is the world leader in photovoltaics with half of the installed capacity. It expects to add more than 5,000 megawatts of photovoltaic capacity this year to a total of 14,000 megawatts.
