Germany reaches 667 MV of PV additions in November

A total of 40,815 PV systems subsidized under the German Renewable Energy Law (EEG) were newly reported to the country’s Federal Network Agency's (Bundesnetzagentur, BNetzA) in November, totaling nearly 595.8 megawatts (MW) of capacity. This is 1.8 percent less than in October (607.0 MW) and 45 percent more than in November 2021 (409.8 MW). As far as can be seen from the data published at the end of December, 27 non-EEG-subsidized plants with nearly 71.8 MW were also reported in November. The total addition thus amounts to 667.5 MW (October: 703.6 MW).
39.1 percent (261.3 MW) of the newly reported capacity was in ground mounted solar power plants. Systems with a capacity of 1 MW or more accounted for 41.0 percent (274.2 MW). 10.8 percent of the new capacity was installed outside the scope of EEG subsidies.
The total capacity of all plants reported this year that were subsidized under the EEG now amounts to 6.09 gigawatts (GW). Extrapolated for the year as a whole, this would be 6.65 GW. The capacity installed this year outside the EEG subsidy is currently estimated at 800 MW.
