Global Energy Monitor

The Global Solar Power Tracker is a worldwide dataset of utility-scale solar PV facilities. It includes solar farm phases with capacities of 20 megawatts (MW) or more (10 MW or more in Arabic-speaking countries). A solar project phase is generally defined as a group of one or more solar units that are installed under one permit, one power purchase agreement, and typically come online at the same time. The Global Solar Power Tracker catalogs every solar farm phase at these capacity thresholds of any status, including operating, announced, under development, under construction, shelved, cancelled, mothballed, or retired. Each solar farm included in the tracker is linked to a wiki page on the GEM wiki.
