The area of solar panels required to power Germany, the EU and the world is marked on a map of North Africa in a quora discussion (Cito's favourite source, I know) but I've seen similar plots elsewhere and there was at least 1 Ph.D. thesis in there somewheres...

As panel efficiencies increase, the area shrinks, of course.
