|Abstract:||The PVGIS database has been used to analyze regional and national differences in the solar energy resource and to assess the photovoltaic potential in the 25 European Union member states and 4 candidate countries. Three scenarios are explored for the EU member and candidate countries within this paper: 1) the expected average annual electricity generation of a 'standard' 1kWp grid-connected PV system; 2) the theoretical potential of PV electricity generation; 3) determination of required installed capacity for each country to supply 1% of the national electricity consumption from PV.|
