Regional reports on existing and planned solar parks

Wiki-Solar has the most comprehensive database of solar parks around the world. This enables us to produce detailed reports of global and regional activity in utility-scale solar power generation.

China - the first country to reach 3GW capacity

In the first half of 2013, China was the first country whose installed capacity of utility-scale (10MW+) PV power stations reached 3,000 MW - as announced here.

We have prepared a comprehensive report on the Chinese market, with a wealth of analysis of the projects and participants in this leading market. The contents of the report are shown below.

The report is supplied in pdf format by email.

Prices & other reports

Our major regional reports are available for US$485 (Stg. £320 or €365) each. To order the China report, complete the form below. For other reports, please email us. For further information on bank transfer payments, see here.

[a]    All data are compiled from the Wiki-Solar database used to produce these maps. Unless specified otherwise statistical analysis is based on projects of 10MWp and above.

[b]    This data is compiled from recognised sources such as the UNFCCC, and from media reports, company websites and other sources. Wiki-Solar has not independently validated this data.

[c]    We do not warrant that the information is 100% accurate nor complete. It is likely that our figures marginally understate the size of the market because of projects of which we are unaware.

[d]    Because of the individual structure of the Chinese economy and political system, certain parameters, which are commonly available in other markets, are sparse for Chinese entries in our database. This applies especially to factors such as the beneficial ownership of the projects and the land they occupy.

[e]    All data is provided ‘errors and omissions excepted’.
