PV Feed-in Tariffs 2014 – 3.3 GWp in 2013, 1% Degression from February to April 2014

The final total of new German PV capacity in 2013 added up to 3,302,826 kWp. With this result, additional capacity stayed within the 2.5 to 3.5 GWp target corridor as provided in Section 20a para. 1 EEG for solar growth.

1. 2013 German PV Capacity Addition

According to the latest (revised) figures from the Federal Network Agency, 2013 ended with additional 166 MW being installed in December. German EEG supported PV capacity therefore added up to 35,692 MWp as of 31 December 2013.

The 2013 table of newly installed German solar capacity looks like this:

Month Capacity (kWp)
January 2013* 274,187
Febraury 2013* 210,402
March 2013* 288,809
April 2013* 366,760
May 2013* 345,817
June 2013* 309,265
July 2013* 312,094
August 2013* 291.463
September 2013* 293,306
October 2013* 225,789
November 2013* 218,913
December 2013* 166,023
Total 3.302.826

* corrected figures, average change 0.03%

2. PV Feed-in Tariffs February to April 2014

As the newly installed PV capacity stayed within the 2.5 to 3.5 GWp target corridor between January and December 2013, the monthly degression for the three months starting February 2014 shall be 1% (Section 20b para. 8/9 EEG). The 1% degression translates into the following solar feed-in tariffs:

Solar Energy (§§ 32, 33 EEG)
§ 32 (2) EEG (Roofs) § 32 (1) EEG
up to 10 KWp up to 40 kWp up to 1 MWp up to 10 MWp up to 10 MWp
