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
In late 2018 our database of over 10,000 projects represented well over 300 GWAC of solar generating capacity worldwide.
This included over 7,000 operational plants with combined capacity about 180 GWAC. Further projects in development, accountied for over 150 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.
