Why are residential PV prices so much lower in Germany than in the United States?

02/26/2013

Join the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) SunShot Initiative, in conjunction with the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), for a webinar titled: Why Are Residential PV Prices in Germany So Much Lower Than in the United States?

The installed price of residential PV is significantly lower in Germany than in the United States, primarily due to differences in "soft" costs, but little detail is known about how soft cost components differ between the two countries, or why. In order to better characterize the nature of these differences, LBNL fielded surveys of German PV installers, adapted from a survey instrument that the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) previously fielded to U.S. installers, in order to collect data on residential PV soft costs in Germany that could be readily compared to data from the U.S.

This webinar will present the results of this survey analysis, along with a broader comparison and discussion of underlying drivers for soft cost differences between the U.S. and Germany, with a focus on customer-owned residential PV systems.
