I was referring to the data from the number of inhabitants / degree of latitude map published by Enerc a little above. "A lot" because there is no scale so it was a purely visual appreciation, "certain regularity" because in the intertropical zone, and even slightly outside, the summer / winter effect is largely attenuated.
do you think of which country in the intertropical zone consuming a lot of energy per capita?
For example in South China, or Australia, knowing that as I wrote, the tropic is only a conventional limit and that by deviating from it a little, the "summer / winter" effect "remains acceptable. For example, the South of the USA.
And when it comes to PV, we are talking above all about electricity, not energy in the broad sense. It really started (in terms of annual installed capacity) about ten years ago, we have to leave a little time anyway ... Maybe the time to substitute for other forms of energies will come, but for now it's essentially substitution for other forms of power generation.
