Germany Solar Photovoltaic Market Outlook to 2015
The report titled “Germany Solar Photovoltaic Market Outlook to 2015” provides a comprehensive analysis on various aspects such as On-Grid and Off-Grid Cumulative and Annual Installed Capacity, PV power per capita, market segmentation and competitive landscape of the major players operating in the country. The report also entails the SWOT analysis of solar PV market in Germany.

The future outlook presented the base case, conservative case and aggressive case scenario factor analysis providing an insight on the prospects in the solar PV cumulative and annual installed capacity for the country. The report also includes the cause and effect relationship among the various industry factors prevailing in the German solar PV market.

Germany is the largest solar photovoltaic market in the world in terms of installed PV capacity. It has the highest conversion rate i.e. conversion of solar power into electricity in comparison to other countries across the globe. The various technologies used in generation of PV are wafer based, thin film and organic PV. The country is home to various companies operating in this sector, numerous developers, integrators and installers. Since the market is very competitive in respect to the number of installers in the country, the price of the installation is the cheapest around the globe. Funding from private banks as well as various rules and regulations initiated by the government support the growth of the PV technology in the country.

In the year 2000, Renewable Energy Act was introduced in which feed-in-tariffs and other incentives helped in encouraging the growth of the PV sector. In 2001, the cumulative solar PV installed capacity was 195 MW which increased to 5,979 MW in 2008. In 2009, Germany represented over 40% of the worldwide market share, making it the largest solar energy market. In 2009, the PV energy output increased to 9,785 MW.

The power generated from solar photovoltaic technology has also registered a considerable growth in the country. Although the power generation using photovoltaic technologies is still expensive as compared to other sources, it is expected that the learning curve will become more convex over a period of time with the innovation in technology and with the achievement of economies of scale. The power generation has increased from 2,220 GWh in 2006 to 6,578 GWh in 2009. During the period from 2006-2009, the solar photovoltaic power generation increased at a high CAGR of 43.6%.

The requirement for PV installation is mostly in the commercial/industrial sector which represents a major chunk of installations in the country. The commercial and industrial applications contributed 68% of the total installations in 2010. Ground mounted is the second largest type of PV installations with the market share of 19% followed by the installations in the residential sector. Residential installation represents 13% of the total installed capacity in 2010 in the country.

Under the base case scenario, the market is expected to improve the conversion rate and the decline in the cost of equipment such as solar modules/panels will offset the tariff cuts resulting in an average growth trend for the industry. The cumulative installations, in this case, are expected to reach to ~ MW by 2015.

Key Topics Covered in the Report:
  • The feed-in-tariffs introduced in the country and their effect on the solar PV market
  • The annual and cumulative PV installations along with PV power per capita in the country from 2006-2010
  • Future Outlook on the basis of assumed scenarios i.e. base case, worst case and aggressive case on cumulative installed capacity, annual installed capacity and PV power per capita, from 2011-2015
  • SWOT analysis of the solar PV industry and Macro Economic Environment in the country
  • Competitive Landscape of the various players operating in the country.
