Solar Energy Support in Germany: A Closer Look

You are here

This Webinar is Public: FREE to SEIA members and non-members

Date: Wednesday, September 10, 2014

Time: 2-3 p.m. EDT


This webinar will review a recent report prepared for SEIA by the Brattle Group, which examines, among other things, the rising cost of Germany’s feed-in tariffs (FITs) for solar PV and resulting reform efforts. Today, Germany has 35 gigawatts (GW) of installed solar capacity and is on track to hit 52 GW in the near future, representing about 7 percent of the nation’s wholesale generation. Most importantly, the report finds: “By and large, the German path has been remarkably successful, given the goal – shared by a great majority of the population – of ‘de-fossilizing’ Germany’s electricity sector.” This webinar will discuss the German solar experience and what lessons can be learned from it.
