German PV Capacity 2010: 1,174 MWp in December Add up to 7,408 MWp Total for 2010

With 1,173.943 MWp added in December, Germany’s total for new photovoltaic capacity in 2010 adds up 7,408.281 MWp. This is somewhat higher than some recent estimates, but lower than earlier projections by the transmission system operators in October 2010.

With the latest December figures, the Federal Network Agency (Bundesnetzagentur) has now published the following figures for 2010:

Month MWp
January 222.247
February 163.280
March 331.378
April 454.045
May 573.176
June 2,108.905
July 663.064
August 363.394
September 654.368
October 340.541
November 359.940
December 1,173.943
Total 2010 7,408.281

Together with the 9,785 MWp installed by the end of 2009 (BMU figure), this adds up to 17,193 MWp as of 31 December 2010.

For purposes of calculating the EEG surcharge, the transmission system operators in October had assumed that 19,399 MW would be installed by the end of 2010. At that time, estimates for additional solar capacity in 2010 ranged from over 6 GW to above 10 GW.
