Electricity production from solar photovoltaic reached 25,207 GWh in 2017 in Italy, according to World Bank / EIA. This is 14.0 % more than in the previous year.
Historically, electricity production from solar photovoltaic in Italy reached an all time high of 25,207 GWh in 2017 and an all time low of 4.00 GWh in 1990. When compared to Italy's main peers, electricity production from solar photovoltaic in Austria amounted to 1,335 GWh, 9,163 GWh in France, 284 GWh in Slovenia and 1,576 GWh in Switzerland in 2017.
Italy has been ranked 7th within the group of 80 countries we follow in terms of electricity production from solar photovoltaic, 4 places above the position seen 10 years ago.
Solar technologies are broadly characterised as either passive solar or active solar, depending on the way they capture, convert and distribute solar energy.
