While in 2010, Germany installed and connected most PV modules to the grid, in 2011 Italy gained leadership. Since in our statistics grid-connected installations are counted, Italy boasts the largest share in 2011. When interpreting the figures, please note that 3.3 Gigawatt were installed under the so called "Salva Alcoa" regulation in 2010 but only connected in 2011. We accounted for the number in 2011. All figures in the graph are shared by national PV associations in the world and put together by BSW-Solar.
