Feed-in Tariffs: Quarterly statistics

The graphs on this page provide an overview of the Feed-in Tariffs (FIT) scheme's progress since launch to the latest quarter (1 April 2010 to 31 March 2019).

This includes the total number of installations and total capacity by technology alongside installation types, with a further breakdown by region.  

These graphs are interactive, allowing you to explore data views important to you. Use the dropdown filters to view the relevant graphs.

Behind the numbers

Understanding the data and where to find further information.

  • For analysis of the presented data and information on the levelisation process, please see the latest FIT quarterly report.
  • A further breakdown of FIT accredited installations up until the latest quarter is available in Excel format in our FIT installation report.
  • For statistics on the number of solar photovoltaic, wind and micro combined heat and power (CHP) installations registered on the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) database, please visit the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy website.

Our graphical data represents installations that have completed the FIT accreditation process and are on the Central FIT Register as of 31 March 2019. The information and statistics may therefore differ from those published by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.
