The High-Concentration Photovoltaic (HCPV) Solar Power Plant in Luzhu District is the largest one in Asia, and the second largest in the world (after Spain). There are a total of 141 solar panels at work at the same time on a vast, open meadow. Even grander than its spectacular construction is its gross power capacity, which goes over one megawatt. This achievement sets a milestone for the green energy development in Taiwan. One feature of the solar plant is that it uses convex lens as a device to gather the solar power, and the overall conversion rate goes up to 26%, which is comparatively efficient.

Questa è una vista generale di Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.

Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?

China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.

Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.
Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.

Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.

I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.

The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.

China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.
