Solar energy world distribution regions for application it is common knowledge that solar radiation is unevenly distributed, and that it varies in intensity from one geographic location to another depending upon the latitude, season, and time of day.
Solar energy: past, present and future the sun is the largest energy source in the solar system in fact, more energy from the sun hits the earth in one hour than the entire world uses in one year. That has opened up opportunities to use solar energy in applications that wouldn't have been possible a few years ago but just because something is possible doesn't make it practical and solar panels are still relatively expensive compared to other ways to generate electricity some applications just aren't practical from a financial perspective. Solar power is energy from the sun that is converted into thermal or electrical energy solar energy is the cleanest and most abundant renewable energy source available, and the us has some of the richest solar resources in the world modern technology can harness this energy for a variety of uses, including generating electricity, providing.
