The New German Coalition Government Hopes to Deploy Another 143.5 GW of Photovoltaic Power Generation Within Ten Years

The new plan requires Germany to increase its photovoltaic power generation capacity by 15 GW annually by the end of 2030. The agreement also includes the phasing out of all coal-fired power plants over a ten-year period.

The leaders of the new German coalition government composed of the Green Party, the Liberal Party (FDP) and the Social Democratic Party (SPD) yesterday announced their 177-page plan for the next four years.

The chapter on renewable energy in the document mentioned that the coalition government’s goal is to increase the share of renewable energy in total electricity demand to 80% by 2030. It is assumed that the annual increase in demand is between 680 and 750 too. Between watt-hours. In order to achieve this goal, the coalition government plans to further expand the grid capacity and make “dynamic” adjustments to the renewable energy production capacity allocated by the bidding. In addition, with the further implementation of the German Renewable Energy Law (EEG), the government will provide more financial support and policy support for optimizing the regulatory conditions of long-term power purchase agreements.

In addition, the coalition government also decided to increase the country’s 2030 solar installed capacity target from 100 GW to 200 GW. As of the end of September this year, the country’s cumulative installed photovoltaic capacity exceeded 56.5 GW. This means that in the current ten years, 143.5 GW of photovoltaic power generation capacity must be deployed.

This requires the country to add about 15 GW of photovoltaic installed capacity every year, and eliminate various restrictive factors that affect the future new photovoltaic installed capacity. “To this end, we are working hard to eliminate various obstacles, including speeding up grid interconnection and certification, adjusting electricity prices, and planning bidding for large-scale rooftop photovoltaic systems,” the document reads, “we will also support innovative solar solutions. Such as photovoltaic agriculture and floating photovoltaic power plants.”

“In the future, all eligible rooftop areas will be equipped with solar energy facilities. New commercial buildings should be mandatory to implement this requirement, and new private buildings will also have corresponding regulations,” the coalition government said in the agreement. “We will eliminate bureaucratic obstacles. , Open up roads to avoid PV installers facing excessive financial and administrative burdens. We believe that this is also an economic stimulus plan for medium-sized enterprises.”

The agreement also includes the phasing out of all coal-fired power plants by the end of 2030. The coalition government said: “This requires our efforts to develop renewable energy on a large scale.”
