According to a report by ADEME , the earths are not so rare. Especially in photovoltaic or solar energy and battery technologies are not widely used. Despite their name, they are not that rare.

The rare earth consumption in the area of ​​the generation of renewable energies is mainly due to the use of permanent magnets for offshore wind energy, which are only used by a small part of the wind turbines on land (about 3% in France). The assessment of the mass of permanent magnets required for the entire French onshore wind farm, which was installed from 2000 to the end of 2018, shows amounts of neodymium and dysprosium, each accounting for less than 1.5% of the annual global market. Nevertheless, an offshore wind capacity of 120 GW worldwide and in terms of annual worldwide production is forecast in a 10-year horizon. For rare earths, demand accounts for less than 6% of annual neodymium production and more than 30% of annual dysprosium production.

In this context, at least one manufacturer already offers wind turbines that do not use permanent magnets for implantation at sea, knowing that there are alternatives: for example, asynchronous generators or synchronous generators without permanent magnets.
Currently marketed photovoltaic solar technologies do not use rare earths. Of the commonly used batteries, only nickel metal hydride (NiMH) batteries contain a rare earth alloy on the cathode, but their use remains very low in the energy transition.
To the best of our knowledge, no other technology for the conversion of renewable energy uses significant amounts of rare earths.

Through a family business founded in 1985, I have been working independently with subsidiaries companies, for over 20 years in the field of computer science and renewable energies.

Even as a child, I was fascinated by the family's small hydropower plant in Styria and since then I have been in flames for sustainable solutions.

TOP 5 Most Efficient Commercial Available Solar Panels March of 2020
he photovoltaic industry has made tremendous progress and is the cheapest way to build new electricity production capacity worldwide. Another positive feature is that photovoltaics produce no emissions. Finally, the danger of fine dust as a possible intensifier of the course of a coronavirus disease has also caught the attention of the media. ? We should focus much more on resilient and decentralized solar energy, also to improve the health, living conditions and financial
Calculate Corona doubling by yourself
"The greatest weakness of humanity is its inability to understand the exponential function," said physicist Al Bartlett in his book "The Essential Exponential!" written. For Example there are 112 (known) corona cases in Austria today and the rate of duplication (outside of China) is 4 days. So could there be 1 million cases in Austria in just over a month? Do the calculations yourself with this doubling calculator: http://www.pv4.eu/calculate-corona-doubling-by-yourself_2048.html But you can use
Ski Lift can run on photovoltaic electricity of the summer
“In summer, weights are transported up the mountain and left in the valley in winter, and the photovoltaic energy of summer is available in dark winter.” Bill Gates explained his investment in lift or gravitational energy storage technology in a similar way. Batteries are getting cheaper and cheaper and will soon offer a cheap, short-term solution for storing energy for daily energy needs. However, the long-term storage capacity of batteries, for example

What happens if I take 35 exponential steps(Steps doubles up)? I’d reach Copenhagen after 21 steps. Three more steps, I’m in New York. Another two steps and I encircle the entire
