Germany on the Road to Reaching 2.5/3.5 GWp Solar Target Corridor – 226 MWp Installed in October

225.957 MWp of new PV capacity were installed in October 2013, the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) informed. Total German PV capacity eligible for feed-in tariffs amounted to 35,308 MWp at the end of the month, according to the agency, with 2,914.615 MWp added so far this year. If new capacity for the remaining two months stays on this level, Germany will reach the upper level of its solar target corridor of 2,500 to 3,500 MWp per year for the first time.

Based on the latest information published by BNetzA (please note that figures may subsequently be corrected upon new information without leading to a new publication of the monthly figures), the October 2013 capacity additions lead to the following table of German PV capacity eligible for financial support pursuant to the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG).

* revised figures from BNetzA due to later correction notifications. Please note that figures from 2012 have apparently also been revised, which is not yet reflected in the above table as revised figures for the previous years are not available. In the link below BNetzA reports a total of 35.308 MWp per 31.10.2013.
