Germany registered 704 MW of new capacity in October

In October, 39,611 photovoltaic systems with a total capacity of 607.0 megawatts (MW) and subsidized under the country’s Renewable Energy Law (EEG) were newly registered with the German Federal Network Agency (BNetzA), 14 percent less than in September (691.3 MW). In addition, there are twelve plants not subsidized via the EEG with 96.6 MW. This brings the total new capacity reported in October to 703.6 MW, seven percent less than the total reported in September (750 MW).
The total EEG-subsidized capacity registered this year now amounts to 5.5 gigawatts (GW). Extrapolated for the year as a whole, this would amount to 6.6 GW. The capacity installed this year outside the scope of EEG subsidies is currently estimated at just under 640 MW. This indicates a trend of around 7.3 GW of new PV capacity this year, although this is still uncertain due to the highly fluctuating figures.
