Supplementary notes

* The source notes that the data for France includes overseas departments.
** The solar thermal area in operation in the United Kingdom has been revised downwards due to a persistent discrepancy between the available market data and the total solar thermal surface area data in operation published by Eurostat.
*** Unglazed collectors are not included in official statistics in Czechia.

The total amount of installed surface is made up of flat plate collectors, vacuum collectors, as well as unglazed collectors.
