Top 70 EU Portfolios - Top 3 Podium (UPDATE) (F).png

Europe has been upping its solar ante over the course of last year. According to SolarPower Europe, European PV installments grew by 28%, from 6.72 GW in 2016 to 8.61 GW in 2017. The region is poised to install an average of 14 GW every year till 2022. Furthermore, the European solar market is at the cusp of a new cycle, no longer bolstered by feed-in tariffs.

To better navigate the dynamic landscape of European PV ownership and in the run-up to Solar Asset Management Europe 2018, we have - for the fifth year in a row - compiled a list of top 70 European solar portfolios.
