This new option seems so unattractive that many will for the time being prefer the old scheme, in which operators of rooftop systems up to kWp are entitled to full remuneration for the power their systems generate.
FAQ - PV systems
For installations designed according to the old rules, there is a deadline of March 31,when rooftop systems up to kWp must be connected to qualify for the full feed-in tariff. Industry players know all too well what such a deadline means: A scramble for all of the panels and inverters available by mid-March is already running at full tilt.
Unfortunately, this has been exacerbated by the fact that Chinese manufacturers cut back on production volumes, and in particular on delivery volumes to Europe, at the end of last year.
Raw materials prices rose across the board over the course ofpresumably due to pandemic-related production shortfalls in the spring. This caused bottlenecks and price increases, which made inexpensive modules hard to come by. Even more dramatic, however, is the bottleneck in the logistics sector. Freight prices egyetlen hotel bad leonfelden Asia to Europe have increased almost fivefold in recent months.
This sharp rise, which accounts for the largest proportion of current module price increases, is probably due to the lack of return freight to Asia.
In European seaports, containers — pv know full and empty — are piling up, and that is squeezing the supply in Shanghai and Shenzhen.
The pandemic has meant that for some time now fewer goods are being exported from the United States and Europe to Asia, rather than vice versa. The lack of affordable transport has likely resulted in kérdések megismerni egymást érdekes modules being sold and installed in Asia. Inthis trend is expected to continue, with up to 50 GW of new installations.
Accordingly, supply capacities for Europe are likely to be limited for some time. The Lunar New Year is pv know just around the pv know.
Time will tell whether travel around the country leads to another extensive lockdown in China, as was the case in In the already higher-priced small plant segment, the increase might be less pronounced. The current sharp surplus in demand will settle down somewhat after March 31, at least in Germany. Modules in the higher-efficiency range will probably be somewhat easier to come by in April and May.
Gambled away For most in the PV sector, went comparatively well.
Other examples are photovoltaics integrated into traffic areas and floating photovoltaics on lakes.
After the first few months in the tight grip of the pandemic, something akin to normality returned to the solar market. Prices were on target, orders were in the pipeline, and for the first time it was possible to plan for the future.

In December, which was slowed by the lockdown, everyone had been preparing for a quiet Christmas and did not want to hear anything about precautions and materials hedging.
Thus, most players unfortunately did not see the dark clouds gathering. Popular content Then in the first few weeks of January came a rude awakening. Suddenly, nothing seemed to fit together anymore, long-term plans were not working out, and supposed winners were turning into losers.
Manufacturers, for instance, are dissatisfied with contract prices fromwhich they can no longer maintain without pv know losses.
But fierce resistance from contractual partners means it is seldom possible to raise agreed prices. Suppliers can only hope that they will pv know allowed to deliver the quantity owed at a later date, when production costs come back down to earth.
At the very least, installers for plants up to to kW that have failed to make timely preparations are now likely to be in a world of hurt. They neither have access to the materials they need at the conditions they had previously calculated, nor sufficient time to procure and install new installations.
There are simply not enough modules left on the market that can be delivered by the deadline. Everything that does arrive in time is sold to the highest bidder at steep markups.
EU spot market module prices: A wrench in the works
In fact, the products that are available are coming from those who made provisions in time but do not have to meet a deadline. Many of us know this type of hustle, not only from the stock market, but from the early years of the EEG, when the feed-in tariff degression kicked in on Dec.
This time, however, the deadline falls in spring, when temperatures will hopefully have risen again and work on the rooftops will be a bit more pleasant. Overview of price points broken down by technology in Januaryincluding changes over the previous month as of Jan.
