German solar electricity production increased by 60%, to 18 billion kWh, last year which is more than 3% of total national electricity production, according to the German Solar Industry Association report.

German solar electricity production increased by 60%, to 18 billion kWh, last year which is more than 3% of total national electricity production, according to the German Solar Industry Association report.

The rapid growth was achieved despite the fact that the German solar industry is facing competition from cheap Chinese manufacturers and reduction of solar feed-in tariffs that fell from January 1st of this year by 15%, and from mid-year should fall by an additional 9%. Of course, such a scenario caused some problems in the market and thus the second largest German manufacturer of photovoltaic, Solar Millennium, recently went into bankruptcy shortly after a similar procedure began Solon, one of the best known German manufacturer of photovoltaic cells.

Regardless of recent events, the solar industry in Germany has no worries as it is currently in the first phase of the shutting down nuclear reactors. Final closing of the reactors should be completed by 2022 and will lead to a gradual increase in investment in solar and other forms of renewable energy sources but also lead to an increase in the share of renewable energy to 40% of the total national production.

Although Germany is known for its large number of sunny days, photovoltaic and thermal solar energy in this country have taken place thanks to the proactive state support of private investment is withdrawn from Germany and made the lead industry and the market for solar energy. These procedures solar sector has become one of the main sectors for job creation and economic growth in a country that continues to hold leading global positions in the transition towards a green economy.
