Australia vs Germany

With the Olympics underway, it's a good time for an international competition. This infographic from AYCC compares the solar and renewable energy efforts of sunny Australia with not-so-sunny Germany.

It should probably should be remembered that Germany has almost 4 times Australia's population. But that doesn't really explain why the are producing almost 100 times as much solar power from far less sun.

The message is clear. Australia should Go for Gold(en sunshine)

UPDATE: Obviously these stats keep changing over time. I read that as of the middle of 2012 Germany is now at 28,000 MW.
And here's an updated graphic from AYCC.
