KfW just announced that Germany won 10 to 4 against Brazil in a friendly competition in preparation for the soccer World Cup in 2014.
KfW will contribute EUR 10 million to a project of putting some solar panels on soccer stadium roofs, while the Brazil utility that owns the project will only contribute EUR 4.25 million.
That’s nice, but I would also like to see the German soccer team beat the Brazilians in their own country in the final for a change. It’s been a long time since Germany won.
Of course this kind of project will get some very welcome attention once the action starts on the tournament. It’s hard to think of a better place for solar investment if one wants to help spread the word.
