German Federal Network Agency reports 574 MW of PV additions in June

The German Federal Network Agency (Bundesnetzagentur; BNetzA) reports 30,614 newly registered PV systems with 573.8 megawatts (MW) of total capacity funded under the country’s Renewable Energy Law (Erneuerbare-Energien-Gesetz; EEG) for the month of June. This represents a 4.7 percent increase over May (548.0 MW) and a 35.7 percent increase over June last year (423.0 MW).
3.218 gigawatts (GW) have been registered in the first half of the year. An extrapolation for the year as a whole thus currently results in an addition of 6.436 GW, an increase of 22.3 percent compared with the previous year (5.263 GW).
A good third (36.5 percent) of the new capacity registered in June was generated within the framework of tenders. Added to this – as far as can be verified at present – are twelve plants with a total capacity of 31.6 MW financed outside the EEG subsidy scheme. Thus, a total capacity of 605.4 MW was registered.
