127RENEWABLES 2015 GLOBAL STATUS REPORT TABLE R2. RENEWABLE ELECTRIC POWER GLOBAL CAPACITY, TOP REGIONS/COUNTRIES, 2014 Note: Global total reflects additional countries not shown. Table shows the top seven countries by total renewable power capacity, not including hydropower; if hydro were included, countries and rankings would differ somewhat (the top seven would be China, United States, Brazil, Germany, Canada, India, and Japan). Numbers are based on best data available at time of production. To account for uncertainties and inconsistencies in available data, numbers are rounded to the nearest 1 GW, with the exception of the following: totals below 20 GW are rounded to the nearest decimal point, and per capita numbers are rounded to the nearest 10 W. Where totals do not add up, the difference is due to rounding. Capacity amounts of <50 MW (including pilot projects) are designated by “~0.” For more precise data, see Global Overview and Market and Industry Trends sections and related endnotes. Numbers should not be compared with prior versions of this table to obtain year-by-year increases, as some adjustments are due to improved or adjusted data rather than to actual capacity changes. Hydropower totals, and therefore the total world renewable capacity (and totals for some countries), do not include pure pumped storage capacity. For more information on hydropower and pumped storage, see Methodological Notes on page 243. Source: See Endnote 2 for this section.
