From February 2016 we have changed the layout of the solar deployment publication. These changes will improve the accuracy of the table, improve its alignment with the solar data in our Energy Trends publication and, based on feedback, provide breakdowns that are more useful to readers of the publication.

There will still be two tables: the monthly table will now give a breakdown by capacity band, while the quarterly table will now also provide details of standalone installations from FITs (alongside RO ground-mounted installations). In addition, as far as possible, all capacities will be reported using the same measure (total installed capacity).

Press enquiries should be directed to the BEIS press office: Tel: 0300 068 5223.

For enquiries concerning these tables either email or contact:
