pv magazine discusses the explanatory statement of Phillip Rösler (FDP), German Federal Ministry of Economics. pv magazine points out that the ministry still remains unclear if the actual construction target of the Federal Government  is 33.3 or 52 gigawatts (GW) of installed photovoltaic capacity.

The aim of the ministry is to limiting the costs of the Renewable Energy Law (EEG) levy by having a maximum capacity of 33.3 GW of installed photovoltaics by 2020. As the Federal Government agreed to in its Energy Concept of autumn 2010.

This target was given in context of the Federal Government’s reversal of its decision to reject nuclear energy.
