Germany Installed 435 MW Solar In July 2021

In 2019, Germany installed 3.9 GW PV, followed by 4.9 GW in 2020. Now between January 2021 and July 2021, the country has already installed over 3 GW capacity.

  • Germany had installed 435 MW new PV capacity in July 2021, according to the Federal Network Agency
  • In the initial 7 months of 2021, it had installed over 3 GW of solar PV
  • Cumulatively, it had installed 57.2 GW of PV till the end of July 2021

Germany maintained its solar power installation capacity to over 400 MW in the month of July 2021 with 434.956 MW, after adding 428.275 MW in the previous month which is an adjusted number from what the Bundesnetzagentur or Federal Network Agency previously shared (see Germany Installed 482.5 MW New Solar In June 2021).

The July 2021 numbers comprise 308.78 MW as ground mounted capacity built outside the EEG scheme of the government. With the addition of this capacity in July 2021, Germany has now installed 3.187 GW of new PV within the initial 7 months of the year. Just for comparison, in 2019 Germany had added in total 3.9 GW PV and in 2020 it installed 4.9 GW (see Germany Exited 2020 With 4.88 GW New Solar Installed).

On a cumulative basis, at the end of July 2021 Germany had installed 57.2 GW of solar PV capacity.

SolarPower Europe (SPE) expects Germany to exit 2021 with 6.2 GW PV capacity, and 7 GW YoY growth in 2022. By 2024, analysts anticipate the market to exceed 10 GW for the 1st time. It makes these assertions in the Global Market Outlook for Solar Power 2021-2025 (see SPE: 163 GW Solar PV Capacity Addition Globally In 2021).
