Compare and Contrast of Renewable Energy Implementation In Developing and Developed Countries
Renewable Energy Implementation In Different Economic Structures
The renewable energy source(RES) transition requires a vast number of problems to be solved. A brief overview of how different economic standing countries such as South Africa, China and Germany tackle this implementation is explored. The paper presents the relevant similar and different problems these countries face, such as the ‘load factor’, ‘intermittency’ and ‘spinning reserve’ hurdles and expose the reader to the underlying questions to answer for RES implementation. This article is supported with well documented data in terms of the current standing of these countries and the South East European country standings for RES implementation. From this exploration it was understood there were far more relevant leading factors that play a role in the implementation of RES. It was discovered that simple policy issues and the public opinion can hold back a country from realizing it’s potential towards a developed country. South Africa is taken to be a country in the infancy stages of RES implementation, China the struggling veteran realizing it’s true potential, and Germany a booming and leading RES implementor. These three countries all had a different approach and stages to their current and future plans of RES implementation which are discussed further.
