• In September 2019, Germany reported new PV installations to have crossed 286 MW
  • It added to a total of 2.97 GW in the first three quarters of 2019, the highest for the period compared to last two years
  • Cumulative solar PV deployments for Germany till the end of September 2019 were closer to 49 GW

After two consecutive months of adding over 300 MW of new solar power capacity, Germany installed 286.9 MW in the month of September 2019 with rooftop solar additions during the reporting month accounting for over 260 MW.

Compared to a year back when the PV additions in September 2018 was reported to be 198.7 MW, in August 2019, the installations were reported to be 327.2 MW, which the Federal Network Agency (Bundesnetzagentur) has now adjusted at 321.99 MW (see 327 MW PV Installed In Germany In August 2019).

However, in relation to the first nine months of the last two years, 9M/2019 saw the country just stop short of a 3 GW milestone as installations reached 2.97 GW. That is 0.5 GW higher than its annual target of 2.5 GW and at the same level that was installed in the entire year of 2018. In 9M/2019, the first quarter was the star performer adding over 1.26 GW.

With the latest PV installation numbers in, Germany’s cumulative deployments for the technology till the end of September 2019 had exceeded 48.89 GW.
