Photovoltaic installations data submissions and EEG-supported feed-in tariffs
Current publishing of photovoltaic (PV) figures
In accordance with the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) and the Installations Register Ordinance (AnlRegV), by the end of each calendar month the Bundesnetzagentur publishes a list of the PV installations registered at the Bundesnetzagentur in the previous month, including the total newly installed capacity from PV installations eligible under the EEG.
The reported total newly installed capacity from eligible PV installations for the month of
October 2016 amounts to: 108.822 MWp
Please note that this increase includes 5.947 MWp from solar farms that, as of 1 March 2015, must be reported in the installations register of the Bundesnetzagentur in accordance with the Installations Register Ordinance.
The monthly figures published also include all values registered at a later date from older installations. The high number of subsequent registrations since autumn 2014 is mainly attributed to a new network operator obligation: The Installations Register Ordinance in effect since 1 August 2014 requires network operators to inform the installation operators with their year-end accounts of the installation operators’ duty to report figures to the Bundesnetzagentur via the
The monthly figures are not republished should there be any corrections to the data after original publication. Corrected values provided before the relevant deadlines will, however, be taken account of in the quarterly process of determining new EEG-supported feed-in tariffs for PV installations and in the process of determining the total increase in capacity.
