China and world data reflect this change. 2 India data are by fiscal year rather than by calendar year. Note: Countries are ordered according to total installed capacity. The order of top countries for additions in 2013 was: China, Turkey, Brazil, India, Germany, United States (slightly ahead of Germany if air collectors are included), Australia, Israel, Italy, Poland, Mexico, and Spain. Data are for glazed and unglazed water collectors; air collectors add almost 1.7 GWth to the year-end world total. Additions represent gross capacity added; total end-2013 numbers include allowances for retirements. Numbers are rounded: added data for countries and rest of world are rounded to the nearest 1 MWth, and for world are rounded to the nearest 10 MWth; end-2013 data for countries and rest of world are rounded to the nearest 0.1 GWth, and for world are rounded to the nearest 1 GWth. Where totals do not add up, the difference is due to rounding. By accepted convention, 1 million square metres = 0.7 GWth. The year 2013 is the most recent one for which firm global data and most country statistics are available. It is estimated, however, that 406 GWth of solar thermal capacity (water collectors only) was in operation worldwide by the end of 2014.
