    Germany adds 607 MW of solar, 218 MW of onshore wind in Oct

    December 1, 2022 - SeeNews Renewables


      December 1 (Renewables Now) - The renewable energy roll-out in Germany is advancing at a solid pace with 606.9 MW of new solar additions and 218.5 MW of newly deployed onshore wind capacity in October, but this is still far away from the federal government's ambitious targets for the coming years.

      In the first ten months of the year, Germany connected 5.5 GW of new solar systems to the grid and the target of 7 GW for 2022 seems within reach. However, the 22 GW of new solar installations annually that are projected in a few years seems far away.

      In terms of newly deployed solar capacity, October was the third-strongest month this year after March with 730 MW of new capacity and September with 688 MW. More than half of the solar plants commissioned in October, or 382.97 MW, were installations connected to the grid outside of EEG tenders. Only 3.09 MW of these were ground-mounted systems.

      At 218.56 MW, the deployment of onshore wind power slowed down in October as compared with the previous month when a total of 273 MW of new turbines were put into operation across the country.

      The expansion of biomass continued at a faster pace with 7.78 MW of new additions in October. In the first ten months of the year, the new biomass capacity in Germany reached 29.63 MW.
