List of 10 large PV-installers in Europe [2024]

The sun’s energy is currently a dominant force in Europe’s renewable energy landscape, with solar photovoltaic (PV) installations playing a pivotal role. As countries strive for energy independence and a sustainable future, the demand for solar power continues to increase. But who are the key players enabling this transition?  This article dives into the ten leading solar photovoltaic installers in Europe. We will explore their expertise, project portfolios, and what sets them apart.

1. Acciona SA (Spain)

Acciona SA is a global leader in sustainable infrastructure solutions and has carved out a prominent niche in Europe’s renewable energy landscape, particularly in the solar sector.

Acciona has a longstanding commitment to photovoltaic solar energy. Since 2001, they have been at the forefront of innovation, building what was then the largest photovoltaic plant in Spain (Tudela, Navarra). Their commitment is demonstrated by the more than 30 large-scale photovoltaic plants they have built around the world, with a total capacity of more than 2 GWp. While photovoltaics is a cornerstone of Acciona’s solar expertise, the company is not limited to this technology. It has played a leading role in the revival of solar thermal energy, commissioning the Nevada Solar One plant in the US in 2007. Its experience also extends to engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) services for solar thermal plants, offering clients a turnkey project contractor solution. One exemplary installation is the Sierra Brava floating photovoltaic plant. This installation was the first grid-connected floating photovoltaic solar plant in Spain.
