Our research that shows Renewables projects labelled as “scoping” currently represents 50% or 48.9GW of the total viable pipeline capacity featured in PV Europe. Of this 48.9GW “scoping” total, 38.6GW is from offshore wind, 5.0GW from battery projects, 3.0GW from onshore wind and 1.5GW from solar PV. This
