Leading countries in planned solver PV manufacturing capacity in 2017 (in megawatts)

China expanded its solar capacity by a staggering 81 percent last year. China is also aiming to generate 20 percent of its power using renewable energy by 2030 – a feat made even more exciting given its previous track record of substantial carbon emissions. By 2014 the country accounted for as much as 70 percent of the world’s total installed solar thermal capacity – a trend that is keen to be continued by the new “renewable energy” giant [www.interestingengineering.com].

2015 was a quite a year for China; not only has it beaten the record for highest capacity in a single country but also taken the lead. China knocked Germany off the top spot this year with an incredible total capacity of 43.5 gigawatts of energy [www.interestingengineering.com]. That’s enough energy to power almost 10 million plus average consumer homes for a year!
