What If the Sahara Desert Was Covered With Solar Panels?

  • What If the Sahara Desert Was Covered With Solar Panels?

    3:31

    In a world exhausted of fossil fuels, solar panels can provide a sustainable solution to our energy problems. But they also come with a couple of issues: for one, solar farms are massive, and they have to be set up somewhere that gets a lot of sunlight.

    Now, if only we had a large mass of unused land that gets guaranteed sunlight everyday… Could we cover an entire desert in solar panels? Would that be enough to power the entire world? What kind of problems could we run into?

  • What if Sahara Desert is covered with Solar Panels? | #aumsum #kids #science #education #children

    5:00

    The Sahara desert is around 9.2 million square kilometers in area. Based on this, it can be estimated that, the total energy produced by the solar panels would be approximately 22 billion gigawatt-hours per year. This would be thousands of time our current electricity requirement.
    Secondly, while generating electricity, fossil fuel power plants produce harmful gases and nuclear power plants produce radioactive waste. But solar panels produce electricity without causing harm to the environment.
    Now, let's have a look at some minor disadvantages.
    Firstly, sandstorms in the desert would regularly cover the solar panels with sand, thus reducing their efficiency.
    Secondly, in a place where water is so scarce cleaning the panels would definitely be challenging.
    Lastly, the project would prove to be extremely costly. But, looking at the advantages, the cost seems to be worth it.

  • What If We Covered the Sahara With Solar Panels

    8:22

    Can the whole world be powered by solar energy? Not by coal, oil, and natural gas but by the sun. It’s actually not that far from becoming a reality. And we already have this technology! So why don’t we put solar panels up everywhere? Well, it’s also not as simple as it seems…

    SUMMARY:
    - Solar panels require space. Sure, they’re not gigantic constructions – a single home utility panel measures, on average, about 65 x 39 inches.
    - Solar panels can’t be installed just anywhere. Since they collect sunlight, they need a place where there’s a lot of it every day. That’s why some regions of the world just aren’t suitable for these things.
    - To build and install enough panels to power a decent-sized city, you’ll need hundreds of millions of dollars.
    - The Sahara, if covered completely in solar panels, would generate 79 terawatts per year. That would cover everything we need plus some!
    - There’s the issue of transporting solar energy across the sea, which would be no easy feat to say the least. New power lines would need to be built, and brand-new infrastructure would have to be introduced.
    - Expenses aside, there’s also the question of working with local leaders. You see, the Sahara belongs to several countries at once, so to build anything at all there, you’d need permission from all of them.

  • What If All Houses Were Covered With Solar Panels?

    4:41

    Rise. and. shine! Get up and seize the day! You can do anything under the sun...when the sun powers everything. Your phone, your home, and all that's in between. This is life on the golden grid. But is it the utopia we thought it would be? In 2018, the state of California passed a law requiring all new houses to be built with solar panels after 2020. Now you might think that sounds both extreme and unfair, considering it will raise home prices by as much as $12,000. But it's a lot more sensible than you think.

  • What If We Terraformed the Sahara Desert?

    4:40

    #AmazonFires
    In an effort to fight climate change, the Sahara Desert could be going green... literally. Plans are being made to terraform the entire Sahara desert; changing it from a dry, barren landscape to a lush green space.

    If successful, the transformation could remove 7.6 billion tons of atmospheric carbon yearly. How could we change the nature of such a vast, isolated landscape?

  • Morocco turns the Sahara desert into a solar energy oasis

    Morocco says it wants to be the Saudi Arabia of solar energy. Its flagship project is a first-of-its-kind, $9-billion energy plant called Noor, meaning light in Arabic, and the size of the city of Paris. Special correspondent Monica Villamizar reports from the city of Ouarzazate.

  • What If There Was a Flood in the Sahara Desert?

    9:21

    The Sahara is the largest hot desert in the world. Located in North Africa, its area is a whopping 3.5 million square miles, which is almost the size of the whole United States! It's a scorching hot place where very few lifeforms can survive. What few people know, however, is that it hasn’t always been like that. Every 41,000 years, the Sahara turns into a savannah grassland thanks to the movement of the Earth’s axis. Its next change of landscape is going to happen 15,000 years from now. But there is an idea that can make this process not just faster but different altogether. It’s called the Sahara Sea project…

    SUMMARY:
    - The first concept appeared in 1877 when Scottish entrepreneur Donald Mackenzie proposed to turn the El Djouf basin of the Sahara Desert into an inland sea.
    - The following year, two French activists, Francois Elie Roudaire and Ferdinand de Lesseps, suggested a similar idea for the Chott el Fejej, another basin in the desert.
    - It’s interesting that even Jules Verne was fascinated by the idea of creating a sea inside the world’s greatest desert. He wrote two adventure novels in 1877 and 1905 that dwelled on the matter and referred directly to Roudaire and de Lesseps’s plans.
    - The first of the attempts to return to this issue was made in 1910 by French professor Edmund Etchegoyen. He was sure that an inland sea inside the Sahara would improve the climate in Europe.
    - The Sahara Sea project’s second comeback was called on by members of Operation Plowshare. They proposed to blow up several explosives in the middle of the desert to create a basin that would then fill with water.
    - There have been several initiatives in the 21st century, but the most promising one is called “The Sea in the Desert”. Its idea is to flood Chott El Jerid, one of the shallow salt lakes in southern Tunisia.
    - Tunisia has a really high unemployment rate, and such a gigantic project would make the country’s economy skyrocket by providing jobs for approximately 60,000 people.
    - The humid climate around the artificial sea would allow locals to farm the lands all year long, making a huge impact on the economy of the country.
    - The Sea in the Desert project suggests there will be alternative energy generators installed after the main job is done.

    5:00

    Africa’s Sahara desert is a prime location, some say, to build arrays of solar panels and wind turbines. But scientists are aware that building these structures can potentially have large-scale effects on the surrounding environment that are worth studying first.

    What If The Sun Never Set?


    Sustainability is a word that has risen in our vocabulary over the past 20 years and for good reason. The first ever lightbulb was switched on in 1879 and now, 150 years later, the energy we need to fill the world with light is killing the planet. Why? Well generating electricity requires a lot of fossil fuel – and burning fossil fuel is generating pollution and chocking the planet with carbon emissions… but… we can’t give up electricity now… we are too dependent and too far gone… enter the solar panel – a glorious invention that turns the suns rays into electricity by stimulating electrons using silicon cells using electrons. Sure sure sure. We would need a sunny place to house enough solar panels to answer our sustainability needs…so…what about the worlds biggest desert?

  • क्या होगा अगर पुरे सहारा के रेगिस्तान में सोलर पैनल लगा What if We cover Sahara with solar panels

    6:13

    |What if We cover Sahara with solar
    IF you ever think why we don't use solar panels to get power on large scale . We can use solar panels in open place like desert to get power for entire world.

    But they also come with a couple of issues: for one, solar farms are massive, and they have to be set up somewhere that gets a lot of sunlight.

    Now, if only we had a large mass of unused land that gets guaranteed sunlight everyday… Could we cover an entire desert in solar panels? Would that be enough to power the entire world? What kind of problems could we run into?

    In just six hours, the world’s deserts receive more solar energy than the entire human race consumes in a year. If we covered just 1.2 percent of the Sahara desert in solar panels, we could harness enough of this power to meet the energy needs of the entire world.

    It wouldn’t be easy, though. How would we overcome the geopolitical and financial obstacles involved? And how could this project thoroughly change the desert’s climate?

    Usually, a solar farm is built to prevent changes to the environment, but if we built one in the Sahara, it might cause some changes of its own.

    If we lined the desert floor with giant solar panels, it would double the rainfall in the region and increase vegetation cover by about 20 percent. Sound a little unbelievable?

    Saharan sand is unusually light in color, which means that it tends to reflect a lot of light and heat back up into the air. If we covered the sand in dark solar panels, it would mean that more sun would be absorbed, and the ground temperature would increase.

    Warmer air rises to areas in the atmosphere where it’s cooler, and moisture there condenses and falls as rain. Before you knew it, one of the most extreme climates on Earth would undergo a significant makeover.

    So if these solar panels would not only provide sustainable energy solutions, but also add much-needed greenery to our largest desert, then what are we waiting for? Shouldn’t we be out there building these things already?

    Well, it’s a little more complicated than that. For one thing, it’s great to produce enough energy to power the world, but then you have to worry about how you’re going to get it to everyone.

    The most likely place this energy would travel to first is to Europe. Exporting sustainable energy would do great things for a lot of African economies, but would they have the means to do it?

    Currently, electrical grids in Africa aren’t very reliable, and they’d need power lines of around 800 – 3,000 km (500 to 2,000 miles) to get where they needed to go. Transporting power over long distances leads to power loss of up to 10%, which means that an already expensive project would get even more pricey.

  • Can solar panels in 2% of Sahara desert power the entire world?

    3:06

    Solar panels can provide a sustainable solution to our energy problems.
    But they also come with a couple of issues: for one, solar farms are massive, and they have to be set up somewhere that gets a lot of sunlight.
    Saharan sand is unusually light in color, which means that it tends to reflect a lot of light and heat back up into the air. If we covered the sand in dark solar panels, it would mean that more sun would be absorbed, and the ground temperature would increase.
    This is according to Amin Al-Habaibeh, a professor at Nottingham Trent University that has researched the idea, writing in an article published on The Conversation Thursday. According to his estimates, if all the sunlight hitting the desert was converted into electricity, it would provide 7,000 times more power than Europe’s total energy demand.
    Lets look at the situation.Here is the simplified math behind it. The total world energy usage (coal+oil+hydroelectric+nuclear+renewable) in 2017 was 14,000 Million Ton Oil Equivalent. This translates to 18.58 Terawatts continuous power during the year.Now, if we cover an area of the Earth 340 kilometers by 340 kilometers with solar panels, even with moderate efficiencies achievable easily today, it will provide more than 18.5 TW power.This area is 44633 square miles.The Great Saharan Desert in Africa is 3.6 million square miles and is prime for solar power (more than twelve hours per day).That means 1.23 % of the Sahara desert is sufficient to cover all of the energy needs of the world. There is no way coal, oil, wind, geothermal or nuclear can compete with this. The cost of the project will be about five trillion dollars, one time cost at today's prices without any economy of scale savings.

  • Solar Power Plant in Africa to Supply Europe

    2:37

    By 2018, a large solar power plant in the Tunisian part of the Sahara desert may start sending power to energy-hungry Western Europe. The company running the plant says once it is fully operational it will generate almost twice as much electricity as an average nuclear plant and supply two million homes in Europe. VOA’s George Putic reports.

    hi guys,
    in this video we are going to talk about what will happen if we cover sahara desert with the solar panes. as we know that solar panels required large area and continuous supply of sunlight so it is difficult. but in deserts there is large amount of area is available so we can make use of it and also it can fulfill the demand of the whole worlds enegy. but in this we also explains why we are not able to executes the plan to covers the deserts with the solar panels.

  • क्या सहारा रेगिस्तान मे बना सकते हैं बिजली? | What If We Cover Sahara In SOLAR PANELS?

    3:21

    In a world of exhausting fossil fuels there is no saying for how long we'll be able to produce energy to meet the energy needs of the whole world. But to keep producing energy without using fossil fuels solar energy is a good alternative. But solar farms require big space and constant sunlight.
    Where will we get a big unoccupied land mass which gets good sunlight?
    One such place is SAHARA desert.
    We can build a solar plant in sahara to satisfy energy needs of the whole world.
    But it's not as simple as it sounds.
    In this VIDEO we'll talk about the obstacles which we will have to overcome to turn this project into reality.
    So, make sure you watch the video till the end to understand everything completely and share your opinion with us in the comments.

  • What If We Covered the Entire Sahara Desert With Solar Panels?

    2:37

    TECHNOLOGY

    What If We Covered the Entire Sahara Desert With Solar Panels?
    In a world exhausted of fossil fuels, solar panels can provide a sustainable solution to our energy problems.

    But they also come with a couple of issues: for one, solar farms are massive, and they have to be set up somewhere that gets a lot of sunlight.

    Now, if only we had a large mass of unused land that gets guaranteed sunlight everyday… Could we cover an entire desert in solar panels? Would that be enough to power the entire world? What kind of problems could we run into?

    In just six hours, the world’s deserts receive more solar energy than the entire human race consumes in a year. If we covered just 1.2 percent of the Sahara desert in solar panels, we could harness enough of this power to meet the energy needs of the entire world.

    It wouldn’t be easy, though. How would we overcome the geopolitical and financial obstacles involved? And how could this project thoroughly change the desert’s climate?

    Usually, a solar farm is built to prevent changes to the environment, but if we built one in the Sahara, it might cause some changes of its own.

    If we lined the desert floor with giant solar panels, it would double the rainfall in the region and increase vegetation cover by about 20 percent. Sound a little unbelievable?

    Saharan sand is unusually light in color, which means that it tends to reflect a lot of light and heat back up into the air. If we covered the sand in dark solar panels, it would mean that more sun would be absorbed, and the ground temperature would increase.

    Warmer air rises to areas in the atmosphere where it’s cooler, and moisture there condenses and falls as rain. Before you knew it, one of the most extreme climates on Earth would undergo a significant makeover.

    So if these solar panels would not only provide sustainable energy solutions, but also add much-needed greenery to our largest desert, then what are we waiting for? Shouldn’t we be out there building these things already?

    Well, it’s a little more complicated than that. For one thing, it’s great to produce enough energy to power the world, but then you have to worry about how you’re going to get it to everyone.

    The most likely place this energy would travel to first is to Europe. Exporting sustainable energy would do great things for a lot of African economies, but would they have the means to do it?

    Currently, electrical grids in Africa aren’t very reliable, and they’d need power lines of around 800 – 3,000 km (500 to 2,000 miles) to get where they needed to go. Transporting power over long distances leads to power loss of up to 10%, which means that an already expensive project would get even more pricey.

    And where would all the money come from? Africa is home to quite a few unstable governments, the kind that raise some pretty big red flags with investors of multi-billion dollar projects like this one.

    On top of that, this would be a long-term project, so there’d be a lot of moving parts. Several countries would have to be involved, and any one of them might see a changing political landscape over the years that could disrupt, or put an end to the whole thing.

    As great as this project could be, it would probably be better to attempt it on a small scale first. Maybe solar panels could be used to power some small African villages, and help to spread access to electricity

    Pakistan is facing severe electricity supply shortages, causing forced power outages over the last decade ranging from 8 to 12 h a day in urban areas and up to 18 h in rural areas. The major causes behind the increasing gap between supply and demand are mainly increases in electricity demand on one hand, and depleting energy resources and financial constraints on the other. In this context the government has been taking various measures, including a partial restructuring of the electricity sector under guidelines from international financing institutes. At present, the country is, therefore, not only facing a serious challenge of meeting the electricity demand but is also facing the challenge of ensuring energy security in the context of globally important climate change issues.

    The role of policy makers at this stage is crucial for not only assessing and reviewing the current strategies to minimize the electricity supply and demand gap, but also the need to develop future strategies, ensuring affordable electricity with efficient generation, transmission and distribution towards sustainable development in the country.

    TITLE - What if the Sahara desert was covered with solar panels?

    - VIDEO SUMMARY-
    Sahara desert is the biggest desert in the whole planet earth. if Sahara desert was a country then it would have been the 5th biggest country. it's size is bigger than the Whole India.

    demand of electricity is increasing as with the increase in technology. so for that we need to use the solar energy to fulfill the need of electrical energy. so we can use solar panel in desert. because deserts are of no use and using that barren land for generating the electricity would be a beneficial idea.
    So what if the Sahara desert was covered with solar panel.
    it gonna be a new innovation and it will be beneficial for our home planet.

    Sand particles in the Sahara are disturbed by strong winds and drawn up into the atmosphere. These enormous plumes of dust are then carried off by the winds - often covering large areas of Southern Europe.

    This almost invisible enemy can cause serious health problems, such as respiratory diseases, but it can also cause problems with solar energy production: an increasingly important clean and renewable alternative to oil.

    Desert dust reduces the amount of radiation reaching the solar mirrors which transform sunlight into energy...

    Could it be possible to convert sunrays falling on the African desert into electricity? Then channel it towards Europe, providing the whole continent with unlimited clean, affordable sustainable energy?

    Yes, according to researcher Christoph Richter. 'Solar energy is a realistic option. The sun shines 30% longer in North Africa than in Europe, this place has such potential.’ Building these power stations in North Africa and the near east will create a type of ‘energy motorway’ that will power through central Europe. Although centuries of European colonialism has led to African mistrust, Richter states that ‘With technological advances and the right political developments, we could imagine a scenario where renewable energies supply 100% of the world's power.’ Solar energy is becoming a much more viable option for the future.

  • The Sahara Desert Was Once Filled With Sea Life

    4:14

    There used to be a seaway where the Sahara desert is now. Paleontologists have had a tough time studying the region due to ongoing civil war, but a new study puts together a comprehensive picture of ancient sea life in the region. Interestingly, several species were larger than expected, as gigantism due to periodic isolation seems to have played a role in their evolution. Ancestors to crocodiles, turtles, stingrays and even 40-feet-long sea snakes lived in a climate that resembled modern Caribbean islands.

    Due to the timeframe the seaway existed (50-100 million years ago), it also experienced two major mass extinction events. The first, the Cretaceous–Paleogene (K–Pg) extinction event, more commonly theorized as the comet or asteroid that killed the dinosaurs. The second, lesser known event but more relevant to us today was the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM). Some turtles and snakes in the Trans-Saharan Seaway seem to have survived the PETM, but it was hard on some areas of life on Earth. Global temperatures rose 5 to 8 degrees Celsius, likely due to a combination of factors including (still theorized) the release of methane clathrates.

    Methane clathrates are an important climate feedback loop that could lead to additional warming in Earth's future, so it's important to perform additional studies on their impact on life in the PETM and in the Trans-Saharan Seaway specifically.
