23rd edition of the international survey report on Trends in Photovoltaic (PV) Applications up to 2017 provided by the IEA PVPS Programme.
The global Pv installed capacity represented 403,3 Gw of cumulative Pv installations altogether, mostly grid-connected, at the end of 2017. The IEA PVPS countries represented 348,1 Gw. The other key markets, in total 37 countries that have been considered and are not part of the IEA PvPS Programme, represented 55,2 additional Gw. a historical part of these 55,2 Gw is located in europe but other countries came in recent years: UK with almost 12,7 Gw, Greece with 2,6 Gw, the Czech republic with 2,2 Gw installed, romania with 1,4 Gw, Bulgaria with almost 1 Gw, Ukraine with 0,9 Gw and Slovakia close to the 0,5 Gw mark. The other major countries that accounted for the highest cumulative installations at the end of 2017 are India with more than 18 Gw, Pakistan with an estimated 1,9 Gw, Taiwan with 1,7 Gw, Brazil with 1,2 Gw and the Philippines with 0,9 Gw.
Numerous countries all over the world have started to develop Pv but few have yet reached a significant development level in terms of cumulative installed capacity at the end of 2017 outside the ones mentioned above. according to a paper released in 2018.1 27 countries had at least 1 Gw installed, 66 countries had a least 100 Mw cumulative at the end of 2017 and 131 countries had more than 10 Mw.
