Berlin, a solar capital city
Germany has been among the first photovoltaic installers in the world for several years, with a total installed capacity of more than 40 gigawatts (GW), behind China alone.
Germany Berlin - 20MW
Halving greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 is possible. The German Space Center (DLR) international expert report predicts a complete phase-out of nuclear power for Germany by 2025 and shows that energy efficiency measures could halve global demand for final energy.
Solar energy in Germany consists almost exclusively of photovoltaics (PV) and accounts for around 7% of the country’s electricity production. Many photovoltaic systems are installed in the country every year, ranging from small rooftop systems to medium-sized, commercial and large-scale solar parks as we can see with this 20MW installation composed of polycrystalline panels to optimize profitability.
