Germany has the biggest solar thermal market in Europe, even though this is still a much smaller market than that of world leader, China. German solar thermal installations resulted in annual energy savings of 500m litres of oil (or 500m m3 of natural gas) in 2009. This corresponds to 36,000 oil tanker lorry loads. By the end of 2013, 17.5 Mio sqm collector area or 1.9 Mio systems are installed in Germany.
