And by the way, by the same logic the Holy Roman Empire (which is not the same as the Western Roman Empire) lasted 844 years, which is only around 141 years less than the Byzantine Empire lasted without the Western Empire. Of course, Byzantium was not an empire by the end...

First of all, the HRE was more of a loosely amalgamated collection of German states, not even worthy of the title of empire, let alone the legacy of Rome. And while yes, after being betrayed by the Venetian scum in the 4th Crusade, Byzantium was a mere shadow of its former self for the next few centuries, I'd still say it was one of the strongest powers in Europe up until that point. So that's still more than seven centuries of being what can only be defined as an empire after the western empire fell in 476 to the barbarian Odoacer.
Furthermore, even as their power waned, and the Turks introduced kebab, Byzantium was still culturally and technologically one of the most advanced nations in Europe. There's a reason that after Constantinople fell to the Ottomans that the Renaissance in Italy really took off. Then the Turks came in and effectively stifled all that innovative thought and made the Balkans the shithole it is today, thus finally extinguishing the last remnant of the Roman Empire.

Not yet, but this is certainly an important step forward. Solar energy is a field which is still relatively new, but is almost constantly being improved upon. Solar energy may not be economically feasible nor environmentally sound right now, but I think it is reasonable that it will become practical within a few decades at the current rate of improvement.
