Can we calculate the amount of energy we can get from the sun?

    Definitely. The earth receives about 174 petawatts of solar energy, of which about 30% is reflected back to space (due to the earth’s albedo). You can calculate this by relating the total radiation emitted by the sun and the sun’s surface area to the surface area of the earth to see how much solar energy the earth is able to receive from the sun.
