    Solar power from Saharan sun could provide Europe's electricity, says EU | Environment | The Guardian

    From the article, just 0.3% of the light falling on the Sahara and Middle East deserts to meet all of Europe's energy needs.
    Sounds amazing, isn't it? But too early to dream of a new beginning for humanity yet! 0.3% of Sahara and the Middle East combined happens to be a very, very huge area. A few practical and technical hurdles to overcome.
