Germany registers of 266 MW new PV power in August, FITs won't be reduced in fourth quarter

2015/10/13      view:
Germany registered 4,510 new PV systems with a combined capacity of 66.69 MW in August 2015, according to new figures from the German Federal Network Agency. Including 199.31 MW of ground-mounted PV systems that were included in the register for renewable energy installations from Mar. 1, 2015, the month’s PV capacity was of 266.0 MW. This is up from 159.7 MW in June and 140.1 MW in August 2014. The newly installed PV capacity for the first eight months of this year was of 1,038.7 MW. In the same period of 2014, the country registered new PV systems with a combined capacity 1.50 GW. The newly installed capacity in the first 8 months of 2013 reached 2.4 GW. Germany’s cumulative installed PV capacity reached about 39.27 GW at the end of August. Taking into account the current growth trend, Germany should install about 1.55 GW of new PV generation capacity in full year 2015. This would be down 17.9% from 2014, when the country installed 1.898 MW. This would also be significantly less than the 2.4 to 2.6 GW annual target established by the country's renewable energy law. As a result of the slow solar development registered over the past 12 months, the Bundesnetzagentur announced that the FITs for PV will not be reduced in the fourth quarter of this year. The newly installed PV capacity for the period was of 1.437 MW.
