Soaking Up the Sun: Solar Power in Germany and Japan

"Going green" seems to be the focal point for everyone nowadays and Germany and Japan have found very efficient ways to make this a priority for their countries. They do this by having the public behind them and actually putting their techniques into play. Germany also set a goal of reducing emission output by 21% by 2012. They are well on their way towards achieving this. Japan also imports 85% of its coal so there decision to "go green" was more out of necessity and it seems that it has provided extra motivation for them. Germany also accounts for 46% of the global market in solar pv installation. These two countries are a good example for the rest of the world.
