A total output of 5300MW of solar power systems were installed in Germany last year, according to the preliminary results of the German Solar Industry Association (BSW).

New figures show that approximately 240,000 new modules were connected to the grid in 2021, constituting a 10% increase in sales compared to the previous year.

BSW said that around 10% of domestic electricity consumption in Germany is now covered by solar PV systems.

According to the climate protection projects of the Ampel coalition, the newly installed photovoltaic capacity is to be tripled in the near future, the renewable energy body added.
