From January to March were produced around 52% of consumption with Wind, solar, hydropower and other Ökoenergien, as first calculations of the centre for solar energy and hydrogen research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) and the German Association of energy and water industries (BDEW) show. In the same period of last year, the share of renewable energies in gross domestic electricity consumption amounted to only 44.4 percent.

The significant increase in the share of green electricity was a result of a combination of special effects, it said. A wind record in February, the March was followed by exceptionally long hours of sunshine. In addition, the power consumption was decreased to one percent compared to the same period last year. This is a consequence of the relatively weak economy and the decline of industrial production due to the Corona-crisis in the last week of March.

wind turbines on Land, the largest green electricity supplier

you look at the entire electricity production in Germany of almost 158 billion kilowatt-hours, the Ökoanteil 49 percent. In this figure, the exported is not included, in Germany, the electricity consumed. With the sun, Wind and other renewable sources of around 77 billion kilos were produced in watt-hours, about 10 billion kilowatt-hours more than in the first quarter of 2019. From conventional energy carriers, about 81 billion kilowatt-hours came a good 20 billion less than in the first quarter of 2019. FOCUS Online electricity comparison

To the electricity provider comparison

the Largest green power supplier of wind turbines in the country with nearly 43 billion kilowatt-hours. Well, 11 billion kilowatt-hours came from biomass, 9 billion of wind farms at sea. The photovoltaic (PV) contributed about 7 billion kilowatt-hours, the water power of about 5 billion. The Rest was accounted for by municipal waste and geothermal energy.

power-up target for 2030 in danger

“The performance of Renewable is very pleasing,” said Kerstin Andreae, Chairwoman of the BDEW General Executive management Board, the Numbers. It was but a snapshot, in the a lot of special effects into play. “Record numbers stand in sharp contrast to the dramatic Situation of the current Development of Wind and PV plants.” The obstacles for a further Expansion would not be eliminated quickly, whether to reach the goal of a renewable electricity share of 65 per cent by 2030, hardly.

“Particularly given the economic downturn, by the Corona-crisis, worth more investment in renewable energy,” said the ZSW Board of management, Frithjof Staiß. In the construction of wind energy and solar plants, a significantly greater proportion of the value added when compared to the use of fossil energies in the country. “This has a positive effect on the economy and the company.” For investors, Renewable energy projects are fraught with a little risk and a financially rewarding Option.
