Renewables produce 32.5% of Germany’s power in H1 2015


Renewable power plants in Germany generated 32.5% of the country’s electricity in the first half of 2015, mainly thanks to wind power capacity additions, the Renewable Energy Federation (BEE) said Tuesday.

Germany has witnessed strong growth in onshore wind, but at the same time there is a notable decline in solar photovoltaic (PV) and biogas installations, commented BEE head Hermann Falk. Even the low annual targets set by the government have been missed. Falk called for more ambitious goals for Germany’s clean energy transition.
