|| The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) produces comprehensive renewable energy statistics on a range of topics. This publication presents renewable power generation capacity statistics for the last decade (2007-2016) in trilingual tables
Renewable power generation capacity is measured as the maximum net generating capacity of power plants and other installations that use renewable energy sources to produce electricity. For most countries and technologies, the data reflects the capacity installed and connected at the end of the calendar year. Data has been obtained from a variety of sources, including IRENA’s questionnaire, official national statistics, industry association reports, other reports and news articles.
This edition also introduces off-grid renewable power statistics.
IRENA gratefully acknowledges the support of national correspondents, the Global Wind Energy Council, the Geothermal Energy Association and Solar Power Europe for their help in compiling this dataset.
