Just 208 MW worth of wind farm projects won capacity in the latest German onshore wind auction results released today. A total of 650 MW was on offer.
The growth of onshore wind energy is collapsing in Germany, jeopardising both German and EU renewables targets. Germany installed just 134 MW of new onshore wind farms in the first quarter of 2019 – the country’s worst first quarter for onshore installations since 2000.
The German government reached a political agreement on an additional 4 GW of onshore wind by 2021.
