Germany added 292 MW of solar in July
Germany’s Federal Network Agency said new PV capacity reached 291.7 MW in July, a good 20 MW more than the amount connected in June.   The strongest market driver remains projects – rooftop and ground-mounted – with a generation capacity of no more than 750 kW, under the feed-in tariff (FIT) scheme.   Only 18.5 MW of project capacity came online during the month as a result of utility scale tenders. A further 26.2 MW came from large scale projects built outside the tender scheme. The remaining 250 MW or so came in the form of rooftop installations and other types of array. Only 945 kW came online under the tenant electricity scheme in July.   In the first seven months of the year Germany added 2.38 GW of new solar with its cumulative installed capacity topping 48.31 GW. German tariffs will cease when total capacity hits 52 GW, a figure analysts expect to arrive next year.   In September, feed-in tariffs and market premiums will again fall 1.4%. Depending on type and size of system, FITs are between €0.0713 and €0.1033/kWh. In the ‘direct marketing’ system category – mandatory for arrays with a generation capacity above 100 kW – the payment is €0.004/kWh. For October, a further 1.4% reduction in payments for systems with a capacity of up to 750 kW has already been fixed.

Study: Germany needs clean energy surge to replace coal, nuclear
Germany must embrace renewables and energy storage at an unprecedented scale if it hopes to offset the void left behind by coal and nuclear phase-outs, a new study has said. A review sponsored by German solar association BSW found Germany will have to drive a structural shift in its energy system to satisfy future demand, set to rise even as the country’s existing generation fleet takes a “massive" hit from decommissioning. The analysis by energy consultancy EuPD says Berlin will require a surge of installed PV capacity between today (48GW), 2030 (162GW) and 2040 (252GW) to plug the energy shortfall, which could soar to 70TWh by 2030. The boom, the document claims, should not only cover the large-ground mounted PV segment (from 15.7GW capacity today to 126.7GW by 2040) but also extend to C&I (from 24GW to 91GW) and domestic (from 6.6GW to 35GW) PV installations. The transformation, the study notes, will fail to take hold unless Germany pairs renewable growth with that of energy storage. According to EuPD, a mix of cheaper technology and rising demand could see the nation-wide market boom from 1.9GWh today to 59GWh by 2040. Europe's PV giant eyes subsidy-free transition EuDP's findings were used by German PV body BSW to renew its long-running campaign against the discontinuation of solar subsidies. Under current legislation, the 48GW industry will see state incentives frozen for new projects once capacity hits 52GW. In a statement released alongside the study, BSW’s managing director Carsten Körnig urged cabinet ministers to make the “appropriate decision” when they meet to discuss the issue on 20 September. The 52GW PV subsidy threshold will be breached next year unless it is scrapped now, Körnig warned. The industry efforts to retain government support come as more and more developers attempt subsidy-free ventures, a market Germany has been slower to embrace than Spain and other Southern counterparts. Initially smaller zero-subsidy deals – such as BayWa r.e.’s 8.8MW and Axpo’s 1.5MW – are slowly giving way to far larger moves, including a 500MW pipeline proposed by THEE and CEE. However, the country risks stifling further PPA activity if it does not de-risk these deals, experts have warned. The spotlight on storage as enabler of Germany’s energy shift comes as the sector teeters at the “edge of profitability”, as argued by analysts for a recent PV Tech Power article. Separate research has identified particularly strong economics for  the country's solar-plus-storage hybrids.

Germany added 2.72 GW of PV in eight months
Germany’s Federal Network Agency (the Bundesnetagentur) has reported 327.1 MW of PV generation capacity was connected to the grid in August.   The activity extended the recent upward trend in monthly new builds – around 241 MW of capacity was added in May, 270 MW in June and 310 MW in July. In the first eight months of the year, newly installed PV capacity topped out at 2.72 GW, the Bundesnetzagentur reported.   Of the new capacity deployed in August, a good 235 MW was represented by rooftop installations and 18.6 MW by ground-mounted plants built outside the national tendering scheme. A further 928 kW of solar systems were registered under the tenant electricity scheme   This month the FIT for solar systems with a generation capacity no larger than 750 kW will fall another 1.4%. In the ‘direct marketing’ system category – mandatory for arrays with a generation capacity above 100 kW – the FIT payment is €0.0742/kWh.   For 40-750 kW roof systems the FIT will be €0.0818/kWh, for up-to-10 kW systems the payment will be €0.1058/kWh. All 10-40 kW arrays will receive €0.1030/kWh.   According to the Bundesnetagentur, Germany reached a cumulative solar capacity of around 48.65 GW by the end of August, just 3.35 GW short of the long-standing 52 GW cap which was set to halt incentives but which the German government has pledged to remove under its new Climate Change Act.

Germany deployed 447 MW in July
Germany deployed around 447 MW of brand-new PV capability in June, according to new figures released this week by the Federal Network Agency (Bundesnetzagentur). May and also June saw freshly set up PV power get to 446 MW as well as 437 MW, respectively. In July 2019, new enhancements totaled 292 MW. In the very first seven months of 2020, developers attached 2.80 GW of solar to the grid contrasted to 2.38 GW in the very same period a year previously. The country's cumulative solar capacity covered 51.98 GW at the end of July. Virtually 355 of the 447 MW deployed so far this year are attributable to PV projects that were executed outside of the tender scheme for solar plants going beyond 750 kW in dimension. The ground-mounted systems with an output of approximately 750 kW, which can be developed outside the tender plan, comprised an overall of 32.7 MW of the complete brand-new ability for July. In September, feed-in tariffs and also market premiums will certainly once again drop 1.4%. Depending upon kind as well as dimension of system, FITs range in between EUR0.0669 and EUR0.0877/ kWh. In the straight marketing system category-- necessary for varieties with a generation capability above 100 kW-- the payment is EUR0.0603/ kWh.
