National PV penetration in % of electricity demand base on 2020 capacities

This figure shows the theoretical PV share in electricity demand in selected countries (IEA PVPS and others), based on the overall installed solar PV capacity until 2020.

Solar PV contributes almost 3,7 % to the global electricity demand and almost 6 % in the European Union. Germany is still number 1 in Europe with 9.7 %.
