24th edition of the international survey report on Trends in Photovoltaic (PV) Applications up to 2018 provided by the IEA PVPS Programme.
The global PV installed capacity represented 512,3 GW of cumulative PV installations altogether, mostly grid-connected, at the end of 2018. The IEA PVPS countries represented 432,7 GW. The other key markets that have been considered and are not part of the IEA PVPS Programme, represented 79,6 additional GW.
With 32,9 GW, India represents almost half of these 79,6 GW, the rest is mainly located in Europe and generally related to historical installations: UK with almost 13,0 GW, Greece with 2,7 GW, the Czech Republic with 2,2 GW installed, Romania with 1,4 GW, Ukraine with 1,3 GW, Bulgaria just above the 1 GW mark and Slovakia with a little bit more than 0,5 GW. The other major countries that accounted for the highest cumulative installations at the end of 2018 and that are not part of the IEA PVPS programme are: Pakistan with an estimated 2,1 GW, Taiwan with 2,7 GW as well, Brazil with 2,3 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 outside the ones mentioned above.
