We hold information on most of the utility-scale solar photovoltaic power plants in operation around the world and many of those under development, where they meet our criteria.
As described here, the database holds a broad range of geographical and technical data about the projects, and lists their major participants.
This major resource forms the basis for:
Mapping plants both operational and under development
Assessing the geographical deployment
Tracking the major participants in the industry
Analysing the relative performance of plant around the world
Providing custom data to participants in the sector
Towards the end of 2015 our database of over 5,000 projects represented over 120 GWAC of solar generating capacity worldwide.
This included 3,000 operational plants with combined capacity of 55 GWAC. A further 1,500+ projects were in development, accounting for over 75 GWAC of future additional capacity.
Maps and analysis are based on our database of more than 2,000 utility-scale solar projects - the world's most comprehensive.
