In the first half of the year, the global ranking of solar energy accumulation capacity of utilities

Date:2017-09-15 17:41

The half-yearly data released by wikis, Solar power, shows that the deployment of utility scale Solar capacity continues to accelerate. In the first half of this year, only 20 gigawatts of solar power was connected to the grid, but the cumulative capacity has surpassed the incredible 100 gigawatts at the beginning of 2017, reaching 120 gigawatts.
In the first half of the year, Asia was still the market with the largest number of utility-scale solar capacity. China ranked first in the world with nine gigawatts of new capacity, with India close to 5 gigawatts and the United States third with 2.5 gigawatts. South America is overtaking Europe and is taking a significant share of the new capacity in the first half of the year, with Chile and Brazil now in the top 20. Europe has continued to reverse, with moderate growth in Germany and France failing to compensate for Britain's fall from support. For the first time, Australia has emerged from the last place, overtaking Africa.
"Assuming that the deployment capacity for the second half of the year continues to grow as before, this year will be the eighth consecutive year of a new record. The cumulative total capacity is expected to be close to 150 gigawatts by the end of the year. PhilipWolfe from wiki-solar.
The semi-annual data report shows some changes since the end of last year.
1. India is the market with the highest growth rate of deployment, ensuring its top three position;
2. With the opening of large-scale projects, Chile's ranking continues to rise;
3. Brazil has become the fastest rising country since the 2015 solar project winning bidder began to network.
4. Australia made the top 20 for the first time, and its ranking will continue to rise as the project progresses;
5. Other countries that have risen in the ranking are Jordan, Mexico and the united Arab emirates, all of which have begun to expand their winning projects.
