The Global Solar Power Tracker is a worldwide dataset of utility-scale solar PV facilities. It includes solar farm phases with capacities of 20 megawatts (MW) or more (10 MW or more in Arabic-speaking countries). A solar project phase is generally defined as a group of one or more solar units that are installed under one permit, one power purchase agreement, and typically come online at the same time. The Global Solar Power Tracker catalogs every solar farm phase at these capacity thresholds of any status, including operating, announced, under development, under construction, shelved, cancelled, mothballed, or retired. Each solar farm included in the tracker is linked to a wiki page on the GEM wiki.

The Global Solar Power Tracker’s May 2022 release is used for this map, as well as the accompanying files for project-level data and summary tables

What projects are Included?

The Global Solar Power Tracker provides information on solar farm phases 20 MW and above globally, and 10MW and above in Arabic-speaking countries.


The tracker organizes information in both a map and table format. Projects can be filtered in the following ways:

  • Status Category: To select one or more status categories, click one or more checkboxes, such as “Operating” and/or “Construction.”
  • Country: To find a particular country’s facilities, type the name of the country in the “Filter the map” box. For example, type India.
  • Country Zoom: To zoom the map to a particular country, click directly on that country in the global map view.


The tracker was designed and produced by Global Energy Monitor, a network of researchers seeking to develop collaborative informational resources on fossil fuel impacts and alternatives. To the extent possible, the information in the tracker has been verified by activists and researchers familiar with particular countries.
