Abstract
This research will focus on the economic geographic patterns of the diffusion of grid photovoltaic (PV) cells. The analysis is specified to the EU 15 and the time period 1990-2010. The causal and correlational relationships will be derived from energy transitions that occurred in history and recent research directed towards renewable energy and solar energy in particular. This results in five independent variables: solar radiation per square meter, growth in energy consumption, fossil fuel production and transition, innovation, and policy. The dependent variable is the amount of solar energy produced. The relationship between these four independent and one dependent variable results in a better understanding of the diffusion of solar... (More)
