German Solar Power Capacity Hits All-Time High… Again
Initial reports say that Germans installed roughly 320-megawatts peak (MWp) of additional solar power capacity in August.
That takes total installed solar power capacity to more than 30-gigawatts peak (GWp), making Germany the first country in the world to generate so much electricity from sunshine.
There’s now more solar power installed in Germany than the rest of Europe combined, note industry watchers from Germany Trade & Invest, the national foreign trade and inward investment promotion agency. They’ll be sharing their insights on latest trends in the German and other solar power markets around the world at this week’s EUPVSEC in Frankfurt September 24-28.
