Over the years the company has covered utility scale solar on some of its Renewable Energy and Electricity Generation Maps. In 2013 the company published its first map dedicated to Solar PV. This was a map on British Solar PV Installations. In June 2014 a map on European Solar PV Installations was published to coincide with the Intersolar Exhibition in Munich, Germany. These maps show the location of the solar installations together with generating capacity and site operator. Solar PV maps on America and the MENA area are planned as well as Solar CSP maps.

  • British Solar Installations Map - 4th Edition, September 2016 The map basically shows the Solar PV installations in Britain over 0.25MW. These are differentiated by symbol and symbol colour gives an indication of site status. The name of the site, site operator and generating capacity is attached to each symbol. The map shows projects which are built, under construction or consented. All this is shown against a background which shows the solar insolation resource. The pdf and digital print versions of this map are updated to October 2016.

  • Current edition 2nd edition (June 2016). This is the first and only map out which shows the built Solar PV installations in Europe over 1.0MW. The map shows the site location of all built PV installations. Each installation is shown by symbol and the site name, generating capacity and site operator/owner is attached to each symbol. The Europe - Major Solar PV Installations map was launched at Intersolar 2016 in Munich, Germany in June 2016.

  • Ireland - SolarPV: Projects and Resource This map, produced in association with the Irish Solar Energy Association (ISEA) builds upon a map/educational poster explaining what is solarPV ands its benefits to an Irish audience published in 2016. The new map covers both Northern and Southern Ireland and shows around 600 utility Solar PV projects. Most of these are at grid application status. Around 15% of the projects are consented but currently none are built in the Irish Republic. Buildout will probably not occur until a feed in tariff is announced. The major rooftop projects are also shown. Each site is shown by location. Symbol color shows status. Attached to the symbols id the proposer/operator and the generating capacity of the site. All this is shown against a generalized background showing the solar resource..

  • Western Europe – Solar Resource

     80.00 100.00
    1st edition, May 2013. This is a map on average solar insolation (w/m2) in Western Europe. It is based on ten years satellite data on a high resolution grid (4km). The colour graduation ranges from 100-260 w/m2. This map was produced to show that in Northern Europe the distribution of solar farms is not related to resource.

  • – February 2016

    This is a map/educational poster published in association with the Irish Solar Energy Association (ISEA). The map is an average solar insolation resource map (how much sunlight does Ireland get and its distribution) with the published grid connection application points superimposed on the map. A mixture of text, pictures and graphics on the map surround explains what SolarPV energy is, how it is works, the different types of SolarPV (ground mounted v roof mounted), how it is exploited and the benefits to the economy, industry, agriculture and the environment. The map/poster is available free but a small administration fee is charged to cover packing and postage.

  • Britain – Solar PV projects in Planning or Proposed – 1st Pdf Edition, September 2015

    Currently only available as a pdf file or printed to order - The map compliments the published map on British Solar PV Installations and Utility Scale projects the utility scale Solar PV industry in Ireland North and South. Currently there are about a dozen projects in the North of Ireland from consented through to built. In the republic there are two consented (planned) projects and almost 100 grid applications for solar projects. Each site is differentiated by symbol and symbol colour gives an indication of site status. The name of the site, site operator/applicant and generating capacity is attached to each symbol. The map shows projects which are built, under construction, consented or proposed. All this is shown against a background which shows the solar insolation resource.

  • Utility scale Solar PV has grown from zero to over 400 applications over the past 12 months. La Tene Maps are now offering a service where companies wanting to keep track of the growth in SolarPV projects can get a map and a database showing the growth in projects on a quarterly basis. Each project is shown by location together with project name, operator and generating capacity. The map covers North and Southern Ireland and includes projects in operation, under construction, consented, as well as those that are in planning or have applied for or have grid connection offers. Clients have the option of receiving a pdf map, a printed map or an excel database or any combination of the three. For more detail contact the company directly. Here on the website we offer the map and database as a one off option. Current edition: April 2016 Researched and Produced by La Tene Maps
