EU countries map - Renewable electricity generation
This example was created on the base of thematic map "2009 EU Renewable Electricity Share" from the article "European Union countries reach for higher renewable electricity generation" on the website of U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA).
"Renewable generation includes hydropower, biomass, wind, solar, and geothermal. Nuclear power is not included." [www.eia.gov/todayinenergy/detail.cfm?id=2530]
"The countries of the European Union are the number two global leaders in the development and application of renewable energy. Promoting the use of renewable energy sources is important both to the reduction of the EU's dependence on foreign energy imports, and in meeting targets to combat global warming." [Renewable energy in the European Union. Wikipedia]
The thematic map example "EU countries map - Renewable electricity generation" was designed using the ConceptDraw PRO software extended with the Map of Germany solution from the Maps area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
