The SolarPower Live Map provides an overview of real time solar PV generation covering virtually all European countries, with most data broken down up to a detailed regional level. In addition to the real-time data, the SolarPower Live Map shows also historic solar PV generation from 2005 to 2016, as well as generation data per inhabitant and surface. This is an unprecedented tool in the renewable energy sector and shows in high resolution how solar is driving the energy transition in Europe. This tool is designed for policy makers, industry and the public to explore at any time the power of solar across regions, cities and countries and see the vast potential of solar in Europe.
The SolarPower Live Map was made in collaboration with leading solar experts of 3E, SMA and SolarPower Europe and it is powered by 3E's Solar Data Services (click here to receive best-of-class solar data for you PV projects). The tool makes use of up-to-date solar PV installed capacity as well as 15 minutes solar irradiation data from 3E, a leading solar data provider. The solar power over Europe and its evolution is shown through a dynamic map based on frequently updated data. The application uses real-time meteorological data updated several times during the day.
