In 2010 large scale PV plants with cumulative power more that 3 GWp were
connected to the grid. Market leader was Germany with more
than 1 GWp new power capacity installed closely followed by Italy and the Czech Republic.
Data about installed power capacity in 2010 is available in
PV Power Plants 2011 Industry Guide,
published by Solarpraxis.
More detailed data for past years is available in pvresources Annual Review 2008 Extended Edition.
World's largest photovoltaic power plants are presented in the table. Only PV power plants
which forms a unique photovoltaic power plant as a whole, are considered.
The main source of information included on this web site are press releases and various other sources.
