What a fantastic first six months of the year for residential storage in Germany! Unlike many other areas in Europe the residential solar market is going through rapid growth in Germany with 22,000 new installations in the first half of 2017. This article doesn't break down the 16,800 storage systems between installations with new PV systems and retro-fit solutions unfortunately. It would be interesting to see what proportion of the 22,000 new PV systems were installed with storage. My guess is that it is pretty high.
From a Hyperion point of view, it is brilliant to see clients sonnen and LG Chem leading the way. No doubt that has something to do with the superstars we have recruited for them!
Demand for residential PV is growing in Germany, and with it also the installation of storage systems. According to market analysis conducted by EuPD Research, a total of 16,800 storage systems were deployed in the first half of this year in the country. Sonnen continues to be the leading provider of PV home storage systems in Germany with a 23% market share, an increase of 1% compared to full year 2016. Second place is occupied by (Senec), E3 / DC and LG Chem with a market share of 14% each. Around two thirds of the storage systems sold in Germany in the first six months of 2017 came from these suppliers.
