Global Energy Monitor

The Global Solar Power Tracker is a worldwide dataset of utility-scale solar photovoltaic (PV) and solar thermal facilities. It covers solar farm phases with capacities of 20 megawatts (MW) or more. The tracker also includes partial coverage of phases between 1 MW and 20 MW. For more information about inclusion criteria, please see our Methodology page. 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, pre-construction, under construction, shelved, cancelled, mothballed, or retired. Each solar farm included in the tracker is linked to a wiki page on the GEM wiki.

The most recent release of this data was in December 2023.
