The nation’s cumulative solar capacity hit 82.19 GW at the end of January 2024, with a total of more than 3.7 million projects.

The rooftop segment accounted for most of the solar deployed in January, with around 816.5 MW of new capacity.

The Bundesnetzagentur also revealed that utility-scale solar plants selected through the country’s PV tender scheme accounted for around 208.9 MW of the capacity installed for the month. Large-scale solar plants operating under power purchase agreements (PPAs) accounted for another 106.2 MW of the monthly total.

The February edition of pv magazine considers the ramifications of Dubai’s COP28 climate change summit for solar and asks where the workers will come from to staff the energy transition. A busy edition also ranges as far afield as Bulgaria, the South Caucasus, Cyprus, South Africa, Poland, and Navajo Nation in search of solar updates.

Germany’s new PV additions reached 14.28 GW in 2023,  7.19 GW in 2022, 5.26 GW in 2021, 3.94 GW in 2019, 2.96 GW in 2018, and 1.75 GW in 2017.
