GERMANY'S RENEWABLE ELECTRICITY 47%

GERMANY'S RENEWABLE ELECTRICITY 47%

IEEFAThe German energy transition continues to gather pace, reaching a record 47 per cent of total electricity produced in the first five months of 2019, putting it well ahead of its target for 2025, which requires it to meet between 40 and 45 per cent of total electricity consumption from renewables.

The achievement for the first five months of the calendar year is documented by the Fraunhofer Institute, a leading renewable energy research organisation, which runs a detailed tally of electricity production and consumption in Germany.

As Fraunhofer’s Bruno Burger notes, each month of 2019 has so far delivered at least a 40 per cent renewable share, with May coming in at a 50.7 per cent share, and the total for the first five months at 46.8 per cent. The lowest month for renewables share was February, with 40.2 per cent.

The biggest contributor over the first five months of the year was wind energy, which accounted for more than 26 per cent of the electricity produced in Germany over the first five months of the year. What’s interesting is the change between this year and last year. Burger says wind is up 18.7 per cent, or 9.45TWh, while solar is down 4.8 per cent, and nuclear output is up 3.8 per cent.

But the biggest falls came in coal – with lignite (brown coal) falling 17.1 per cent, or 9.48TWh (about the same amount that wind increased), while hard coal (black coal) was down 22.4 per cent.

GERMANY'S COAL IS MAIN
Electricity generated from Germany’s coal-fired plants declined by 46 million megawatthours (MWh) between 2000 and 2017, while electricity generated from wind and solar increased by 95 million MWh and 40 million MWh, respectively. Despite these changes, coal remains the main source of generation in Germany. Coal’s share of total generation declined from 50% in 2000 to 36% in 2017, despite slight increases in 2012 and 2013 that were related to Germany’s move away from nuclear power.

РУССКИЙ ГАЗ ДЛЯ ЕВРОПЫ: 35%
“По итогам 2018 года доля российского газа в потреблении газа Европой достигла более, чем 35%, а в импорте - 46%, то есть это почти половина. При этом Евросоюз остается основным потребителем газа из России - доля стран Евросоюза в поставках "Газпромом" в прошлом году достигла уже более 86%, что говорит о нашей существенной взаимозависимости, и о том, что мы должны действовать достаточно скоординировано", - заметил замглавы Минэнерго России.
