Top European Solar Portfolios


The European solar market is poised to continue to follow an upward trend in 2019 and install another 18 GW of solar PV capacity, bolstered by the increasing appetite and pool of opportunities for unsubsidized solar private PPAs.

The renaissance of the Spanish market has contributed substantially to last year's growth. In 2018, Turkey witnessed an uptick in solar PV landing amongst the top three hottest markets. Although the country now finds itself at a turning point with the former policies coming to a halt, the country is still forecasted to rank eighth globally with respect to operational PV capacity, where 13.2 GW of solar could be installed by the end of 2020. The Netherlands is another budding market. According to IHS Markit, the Dutch solar PV market is expected to make great strides as the third fastest growing European market, after Spain and France, in the coming year.

All in all, the verdict is in. The forecast season anticipates a banner year for European solar. The European Union nations have RE targets and commitments to reach by the end of 2020, requiring collective efforts by all the stakeholders and particularly the investors and asset owners. Coming hot on the heels of the European Parliament elections, the solar sector, specifically in Germany and France, has green horizons on sight.

As a prelude to Solar Asset Management Europe 2019 and to gain a better grasp of the solar asset ownership landscape, Solarplaza has published this data overview that includes the Top 50 operational European solar portfolios, listing: capacity, location, respective geofocus and company details.
