The International Energy Agency’s Renewables 2017 report finds that solar PV capacity grew 50% last year, underpinning a 12% increase in this year’s renewables forecast and prompting the IEA to forecast 1,000 GW of clean energy by 2022.
The International Energy Agency's Photovoltaic Power System Programme (IEA PVPS, Paris, France) published its new Snapshot report on Tuesday, April 18th, 2017. This serves as a preliminary assessment prior to the PVPS Trends Report that will be published in Q3 2017.
This report provides estimated data about photovoltaic (PV) capacity in the countries reporting to the IEA PVPS Programme and additional key markets. At least 303 GW of PV are now installed worldwide, while in 2016, 75 GW of PV were installed globally.
