According to figures published on May 31 by the German Federal Network Agency (Bundesnetzagentur), the country achieved a newly installed PV capacity of 379.95 MW last April. This is 3.3 percent more than in March (368 MW) and 31.5 percent more than in the same month last year (289 MW). Around 318.3 MW of the new capacity was installed outside of tenders.
In total, the capacity added in the first four months of the year amounts to 1.48 GW; when projected on the entire year, this would result in 4.44 GW. The total PV capacity installed in Germany amounted to around 50.66 GW as of April 30. Of this amount, 50.46 GW are relevant for the 52 GW cap on subsidies still in force. The German government has promised to abolish the cap for months, but has still not implemented it.
