Wiki-Solar information provision - further notes for users
The following should help you interpret your Wiki-Solar reports:
All data are compiled from the Wiki-Solar Database at the time the report is produced. Unless specified otherwise at the bottom of a report, statistical analysis is based on projects of 4MWAC and above, or as defined in the definitions here.
This data is compiled from recognised sources such as the UNFCCC, Government Departments of Energy, Energy Information Administration, and from media reports, company websites and other sources as described here.
Pre-delivery quality assurance of reports takes the form of consistency-checking in line with the approach outlined under Validating the Data. Reports and listings are prepared in good faith E&OE. Where customers require more detailed auditing of data, they should request a separate quotation.
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.
The completeness of various aspects of the data varies from market to market depending on the prevailing commercial and economic characteristics of different jurisdictions.
Site locations may be based on satellite data, planning applications, site plans, given coordinates or the nearest town. Their accuracy cannot be guaranteed until plants show on satellite images.
Website addresses for listed participants are shown where we have this on record.
We do not list contact personnel for participant organisations, because our data protection policy and registration prevent us from making this data publicly available. Many organisations' personnel are in liaison with Wiki-Solar to provide updated site data or notify us of new plants, but these individuals will not necessarily be those that prospective partners would wish to contact.
The country listed against each participant is that where their head office is located. It is not necessarily where they conduct the majority of their business. The project lists for the top participants are typically listed in order of the country where they are sited.
All data is provided ‘errors and omissions excepted’. See also the terms and conditions on the right.
Wiki-Solar reports are produced in Portable Data Format (pdf) files. Many reports can additionally be made available in Excel (xls) format, for which we reserve the right to charge an additional 10% of the listed price.
To obtain further details of listed projects:
Further details of projects are given in the placemarkers on the projects shown in the online maps that can be ordered with the project listings. The link to the online map we provide is a time-limited voucher, which will expire after a few weeks, whenever a more recent map is uploaded.
This resource uses the Google mapping facilities, which sometimes have trouble displaying the entire index (truncating part way through the alphabet). If you have trouble finding the project you are looking for, please email us.
Data supply terms & conditions
Our report(s) are prepared expressly for you, based on your specific require-ments. They should not be copied or distributed to third parties without our express consent.
All reports are based on the projects listed on the Wiki-Solar Database at the time the report was produced. More projects are being added continuously, and projects are occasionally removed if they are found to be duplicates of others, or become cancelled.
Reports are delivered E&OE and we do not warrant that they are complete, or that listed organisations will be suitable counter-parties for other projects.
