Mercom Capital Group, a clean-energy communications and research firm, has released its Annual Global Report announcing the 10 leading global large-scale solar PV developers.
The report, which includes data from July 2022 to June 2023, used set criteria to compile the rankings and ranked developers with projects in at least two countries. Other key criteria included the operational capacity of a project, projects under construction, and projects with awarded PPA contracts. Large-scale projects with 1 megawatt (MW) or more were considered.
With a total capacity of 41.3 gigawatts (GW), France-based TotalEnergies emerged as the top solar PV developer in the world based on its operational, under-construction and awarded (PPA-contracted) projects. Adani Green Energy, an India-based renewable-energy developer, ranked second with 18.1 GW, followed by Canada-based Brookfield Renewable Partners with 18 GW.
