Development of solar installed capacity in the world table

Polaris solar PV net news: 1, global solar energy installed capacity is summarized (encountered a dashed line to the right coordinate)


Development of solar installed capacity in the world (table)

From a global perspective, as with the total production of solar installed capacity respectively, are also in the top three in Europe, Asia and North America, and the last three are the Eurasian adjacent area, Central America and the Caribbean and the Middle East. If we follow the General statistics of the continents, South America, Africa and Oceania is the smallest solar installed capacity area.

In 2015, Europe, Asia, and North America’s renewable energy capacity than 95% of the total installed capacity in the world, only accounts for less than 5% in other regions.

2, regional solar installed capacity as described (encountered a dashed line to the right coordinate)

Africa


Development of solar installed capacity in the world (table)

Light in the African region is rich in resources, economy of underdevelopment and backwardness of energy production, lack of production and use of solar energy, national capacity is low. As can be seen, entering 2009, the solar industry began to develop in parts of Africa, significant increase in installed capacity, such as South Africa, and Algeria, and Egypt, and Réunion. Among them, South Africa and rapid development in recent years.

From 2015 solar installed capacity in parts of Africa, the top several difference is South Africa, and Algeria, and Réunion, and Egypt and Morocco. Despite the light in Africa is rich in resources, but the majority of the national energy supply is far from enough. Restricting the primary cause of economic development in Africa is that energy supply stability and security. “Renewable energy technology transfer cooperation projects in Central Africa” supported the first recipient in Ghana and Zambia 3MW and 2MW solar installed capacity in 2015, respectively, among the 25 or so in Africa. Power rate of the population in both countries is 70% and 25% respectively, lower power consumption rate of rural population in particular, needs to be sufficient by using local solar energy solve the power shortage problem.

Asia


Development of solar installed capacity in the world (table)

Solar installed capacity in the region is currently ranked second in the world, second only to Europe. Trend can be seen from the growth, after 2011 solar installed capacity of countries in the region to speed up growth. China, Japan and India respectively in recent years solar machine speed is the fastest of the three countries. Korea, and Thailand, and Taiwan Province, Pakistan, Malaysia and Bangladesh are also ranked top ten in Asia.

From 2015 solar installed capacity in Asia, China and Japan than in other countries. Among them, China has become the world’s countries with the highest solar energy capacity.

The Americas

Americas-North America, South America and Central America and the Caribbean discussed.

Mainly in North America is the United States, and Canada and Mexico. United States solar installed capacity has grown rapidly, Canada second, Mexico increased more slowly.

Africa is similar to solar power in South America and Central America and the Caribbean began to develop rapidly in recent years, but the capacity remains generally low. Chile, and Honduras’s installed capacity is higher, at dozens of MW below the level in most countries.

Europe

Europe developed more solar energy development and use of one of the earliest parts of the world, penetration is very high. With the promotion of clean energy, European countries continue to increase for solar energy development, including Germany and the United Kingdom, and France and other countries to maintain a high growth rate. In other countries, you can clearly see that the growth rate of the past decade turning points, such as Italy, and Spain, and Belgium, and Greece, most other countries are slowing capacity growth after 2013, it is worth attention. Adjacent areas in Europe and Asia, did not appear to slow the upward trend of solar capacity.

From 2015 the European solar energy capacity, Germany ranks first, respectively, after Italy and the United Kingdom, and Spain, and France and other countries. Can also be found, which is largely concentrated in the economically developed in Western Europe.

Oceania


Development of solar installed capacity in the world (table)

Solar energy’s largest countries in Oceania is Australia, other countries are in a period of rapid development. Installed capacity from 2015 Oceania, Australia accounted for 99% of the total continental.

Other areas

Installed capacity of solar power in the Middle East is in the initial period of development. Israel’s development speed and capacity are among the first in the region, other countries is relatively small.
