Enough solar installed in EU now to power Austria.

Business Green: “Reports of the demise of the European solar industry have been greatly exaggerated. That is the central conclusion of a new status report from the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre, which reveals that despite subsidy cuts in a host of key markets two-thirds of the world’s new solar PV panels were installed in Europe last year. It also confirms that solar power delivered two per cent of the EU’s electricity needs in 2011, equivalent to the national electricity demand of Austria.”
