Postal code areas: Energymap of Germany

This Energymap shows the regional distribution of solar power plants for two-digit postal code areas in Germany (last updated August 2014). The installed capacity [%] refers to the overall performance of all solar power plants in Germany.

Data

System Register of Renewable Energies

The four German transmission system operators (TSO) TenneT, Amprion, 50Hertz and TransnetBW publish regularly the current system registers of all power plants, which are funded by the German Renewable Energy Act (German: Erneuerbare-Energien-Gesetz, EEG). These include solar energy from photovoltaics, wind energy, hydropower, biomass, geothermal and gas power plants.

Among other values the system register includes the postal code and the installed capacity for each EEG plant. Consequently, the analysis and visualization is done for postal code areas. Therefore, the installed capacity of all EEG power plants in the selected postcode region are accumulated for the chosen energy source.
