Photovoltaics

Photovoltaics in Germany is a fast growing part of the renewable electricity generation. The installed capacity in the country has raised to an amount of around 39 gigawatts (As of end of 2016). About 9.3 gigawatts of solar power are already installed in the control area of 50Hertz. This also involves balancing the fluctuations in power feed-in during day and night.

Below, you will find a number of important key figures relating to Photovoltaics in the 50Hertz control area.
