Japan slips off solar energy pace

[Asahi News] Germany leapfrogged Japan in 2004 to become the world’s fastest growing producer of solar power. Japan still has the largest total capacity at 1.13 million kilowatts, as of the end of 2004, compared with Germany’s 790,000 kilowatts. Last year, however, Germany installed enough equipment to generate 360,000 kilowatts, compared with Japan’s growth by 270,000 kilowatts, according to figures from the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
