New map of Britain’s solar power installations is published

Britain's solar installation mapLa Tene Maps has published an updated and enlarged edition of its “Britain – Solar PV Installations and Resource” map.

Available in full colour, this the only only map that shows the state of the industry in Britain. The map basically shows Solar PV installations in Britain over 0.25MW by location.

Each site is shown by a symbol. Colour of symbol shows status of the site (consented, under construction and operational). The name of the site, site operator and generating capacity is attached to each symbol. The map also has a solar insolation resource map as a background.

This map is published in association with the British Photovoltaic Association (BPVA). The sample above is deliberately low-scale,

John Coleman, Chief Executive of Dublin-based La Tene Maps, said: “We are seeing a growth in projects in the UK at the moment and we have about 200 more projects on this map than we had on the first edition.”

For Britain and Ireland, maps are available on the following utility scale renewable technologies. Anaerobic Digestion, Bioenergy, Hydropower, SolarPV, Wind, Wave Tidal.

The company has European map coverage on SolarPV, Wind, Wave and Tidal and La Tene Maps has near-world coverage on onshore wind and world coverage on offshore wind, wave and tidal projects.
