Germany recorded new photovoltaic installations 50.4 megawatts in February according to the latest statistics released by the operator of the German Bundesnetzagentur network. Within a month before the newly installed it was of 83.2 megawatts, while in February 2015 had been registered new plants for 98.0 megawatts.
In early 2016 the newly installed was 133.6 megawatts, with a sharp decline compared to 221.5 megawatts in the same period of 2015.
If this growth rate were to be confirmed in the coming months, Germany could get to only install 800 megawatts this year. This result would be lower by 44 percent compared to 2015, during which were installed gigawatts 1:45 and it would be less than the target set by the German government which is between 2.4 and 2.6 gigawatts.
The cumulative installed PV capacity in late January in Germany reached about 39.83 gigawatts.
