New record! In 2023, Germany added 14GW of photovoltaic installed capacity

Jan 09, 2024

The German Solar Industry Association stated that in 2023, the new installed capacity of photovoltaics in Germany was approximately 14GW, a year-on-year increase of 95%. Among them, about 7GW comes from the household sector, a year-on-year increase of 135%; Approximately 4.3GW comes from ground power stations, a year-on-year increase of 40%; Approximately 2.5GW comes from commercial roofs, with a year-on-year increase of 75%.

This is the first time that Germany's annual new photovoltaic installed capacity has exceeded 10GW. As an old established photovoltaic power, as early as 2010-2012, Germany's new photovoltaic installed capacity has exceeded 7GW for three consecutive years, making it a leader in the global photovoltaic industry. But with the decline in subsidies, Germany's photovoltaic installation has also experienced a continuous decline for many years.

It was not until 2022, when Europe faced an energy crisis and electricity prices skyrocketed, that Germany's annual photovoltaic installed capacity exceeded 7GW again, and it strongly supported the development of household photovoltaics to alleviate the energy crisis. However, under market demand, labor shortages have limited the development of photovoltaics in Germany and even Europe.

In 2023, with policy and labor support, Germany's newly added photovoltaic installed capacity saw a significant year-on-year growth and set a new record. According to a series of laws issued by the local government, the total installed capacity of photovoltaics in Germany will reach 215GW by 2030

At the same time, a large number of photovoltaic enterprises have also emerged in Germany, hoping to build an integrated photovoltaic industry chain to meet the needs of the local and even European markets.
