Each project in the Wiki-Solar Database is listed in a specified country and we can therefore map projects and analyse and benchmark the characteristics by continent. The table on the right shows continental deployment of PV power plants of 4MWAC and over. Click on names to see the map of installations in the continent. Click here to see figures by country.
The continents have progressed at different times and rates to reach the position shown on the right. The graphs below shows the annual and cumulative deployment for each continent.
The total capacity of operating utility scale solar power plants of 4 MWAC + by continent at mid-2016 was as follows:
Australasia & Oceania
North & Central America
We analyse data by continent and sub-continent
