Solar power accounts for 10% of electricity generated in the EU.

In June and July, solar power accounted for one tenth of all electricity generated in the European Union. A record amount of almost 39 terawatt hours (billion kilowatt hours) was also generated. This is stated by climate think tank Ember in a new analysis.

In 2018, considerably less solar electricity was generated during the two summer months. At that time, it was more than 28 terawatt hours. The Netherlands was the country within the EU that achieved the greatest increase. From 1.1 terawatt hours in 2018, 3.2 terawatt hours were generated this year. This increased the share of solar power in total energy demand from 7 to 17 percent.

Germany is the largest generator of solar electricity within the EU. There too, electricity from solar panels accounted for 17 percent of energy needs.
