Europe Average Daily Solar Hours (Solar Insolation)
As you can see, northern Europe has some of the lowest average daily solar insolation values when compared to North America, South America, Africa, etc. However, Europe and in particular, Germany, leads the world in solar energy development and deployment. That's because it's all about money and the cost of the energy that is being avoided. Even low-sun areas can make advantageous use of solar energy when the cost of electricity is high. The following map can be used to estimate the number of solar panels, batteries, etc. that are needed for powering solar air conditioners or other equipment with a predictable power draw.
