Susanne von Aichberger | February 22, 2017
On 31 January 2017, Germany’s Federal Grid Agency published that 441 MW of PV capacity were registered in December 2016. The main reason for the 140% month-on-month growth was the possibility to install landfill projects outside the tender scheme until the end of 2016. This brings the total added PV generation capacity in 2016 to 1.5 GW, and means that the FiT rate will be left unchanged. As for tender projects, the first round in 2017 was concluded on 8 February, and awarded 200 MW at prices as low as EUR60/MWh.

    After a record year of over 14 GW of PV installations, dominated by 10 GW of utility-scale PV, the United States is set to uphold its position as one of the world’s largest PV markets also in 2017. The demand for utility-scale systems is however forecast to decline as the project development pipeline is replenished with projects targeting later completions as the ITC begins to step down from 2020 to 2022.
