Fraunhofer ISI: PV Installations Generate Almost Three Times Higher Profits Than Onshore Wind Despite Lower Yields

In view of the substantial increase of costs for electricity consumers for financial support paid under the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG), Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research (Fraunhofer ISI) examined “Distributional effects of the promotion of photovoltaic expansion and wind onshore“. The study shows great differences between the two renewable sources. Photovoltaic installations generate significantly higher profits than onshore installations, even though they produce less electricity overall, Fraunhofer ISI says. The study also points out striking differences between individual federal states.

Fraunhofer ISI Study on Achievability of Electromobility Target 2020 of 1 Million Electric Cars in Germany

A new study by the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research (ISI) “Market launch scenarios for electric vehicles” shows that a successful market launch of electric cars depends on various external factors. ISI considers the joint goal of the German government and NPE Mobility of one million electric cars by 2020 still reachable under optimistic assumptions, even without monetary measures. Only 150,000 and 200,000 electric cars on Germany’s roads are possible by 2020 under less optimistic framework conditions.
