    The photovoltaic is growing quite fast, but I don't have any
    stats on solar thermal.

    "Production of photovoltaic (solar) cells exceeded 390 megawatts in 2001,
    marking the fourth straight year of growth at or above 30 percent" (p. 44).

Early word is that worldwide growth of PV in 2003 was somewhere around
40%. The stats should be available in a month or two.

The German have the Passiv haus.  Which means all house shave to be designed
with the sun in mind to capture passive solar energy - and other points

How do you quantify arranging a house to take in more sun.  Can't do that in
sales figures.
