The deployment of both onshore wind and solar capacity proceeded at a solid rate compared to October when virtually 606 MW of solar systems and 218 MW of wind ranches were put into operation throughout the nation.

In general, new solar additions got to 6.09 GW in the initial eleven months of 2022 while the recently installed onshore wind capacity completed 2.1 GW.

The biomass-fired nuclear power plant that were commissioned across Germany in November had actually an integrated capacity of 5.34 MW. In the initial eleven months of the year, the new biomass capacity in the country got to 34.58 MW.
