169.440 tetra Wh per year in solar energy of thermal origin
14 tetra Wh of photovoltaic solar energy
Solar energy potential = 60 times the current electrical
consumption of the European Union
35 tetra Wh of wind energy
It is possible to expand, With such potential, the use of
solar energy in order to increase its share by 6% in 2015
and 25% in 2050.
