The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) has set out to produce comprehensive, reliable data sets on renewable energy capacity and use worldwide. The first such data set shows renewable power-generation capacity for 2000-2014.
The renewable power capacity data shown represents 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 an IRENA questionnaire, official national statistics, industry association reports, consultant reports and news articles.
Charts highlighting key data and the slide deck pdf are available here.
Renewable power capacity data is available for download and continually updated, visit IRENA's Data and Statistics.
