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 38 gigawatts (As of end of 2015). About 8.8 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.

Angaben auf Basis der Hochrechnungsistwerte (¼-h-Leistungs-Mittelwerte). Die Werte werden von zwei Anbietern (Meteocontrol & EnergyMeteoSystems) jede 15 min an 50HzT übermittelt. Aus den einzelnen Hochrechnungen wird eine Metahochrechnung gebildet. Die Werte beziehen sich auf Photovoltaik inklusive Direktvermarktung.

* Provisional data, final data will be available in June 2016; Source: EEG-Anlagenstammdaten von 50Hertz.
