According to predictions from the German Solar Industry Association (BSW-Solar), sales of solar installations in Germany will experience clear double-digit percentage growth rates this year. This was announced by the Association in the run-up to Intersolar Europe, which will take place from June 9 – 11 at the grounds of the Munich New Trade Fair Centre.

In 2009, the German solar power industry and its suppliers generated sales of more than €10 billion and a total of 60,000 jobs now depend directly upon the photovoltaics industry.
