1. The total power used by humans worldwide is approximately 15 TW (terawatts). Sunlight striking the Earth provides 1.336 kW per square meter (assuming no clouds). The surface area of Earth is approximately 197,000,000 square miles. How much of Earth’s surface would we need to cover with solar energy collectors to power the planet for use by all humans? Assume that the solar energy collectors can only convert 10% of the available sunlight into useful power.
