2019 was another record-breaking year for the Australian solar PV market in terms of annual capacity additions. However, when it comes to new large-scale projects coming online, a downward trend can be seen since 2018. On top of some pressing issues in terms of e.g. the grid &  contracting, the impact of COVID-19 on the global solar value chain will also have its effects on the growth trajectory of the market.

In order to better understand the changing landscape of the utility-scale solar energy market in Australia and to gear up for Solar Asset Management Australia 2020, we have updated our overview of the country’s largest solar PV projects. The cumulative capacity of the Top 50 Australian projects adds up to about 4 GW. This accounts for more than 25% of the country’s total solar PV installations including rooftop solar.

The published update of our data overview of the country’s largest operational solar PV projects is here to bring you relevant insights on:

  • Major market developments in 2019 and 2020 (Q1 & Q2)
  • A comprehensive list of the largest operational projects and their owners
