Electricity production from solar photovoltaic reached 39,895 GWh in 2017 in Germany, according to World Bank / EIA. This is 4.72 % more than in the previous year.
Historically, electricity production from solar photovoltaic in Germany reached an all time high of 39,895 GWh in 2017 and an all time low of 1.00 GWh in 1990. When compared to Germany's main peers, electricity production from solar photovoltaic in Austria amounted to 1,335 GWh, 3,048 GWh in Belgium, 9,163 GWh in France and 165 GWh in Poland in 2017.
Germany has been ranked 6th within the group of 80 countries we follow in terms of electricity production from solar photovoltaic, 3 places behind the position seen 10 years ago.
Solar technologies are broadly characterised as either passive solar or active solar, depending on the way they capture, convert and distribute solar energy.
