I May Be Wrong on Coal in Germany

Energiewende Germany kindly pointed out on Twitter a link to the newest figures by Arbeitsgemeinschaft Energiebilanzen on electricity generation in Germany from 1990 to 2012.

They have electricity from coal last year at 118.0 TWh in 2012, a slight increase from the 112.4 of 2011,  reverting largely to the 117.0 TWh in 2010.

That places the numbers of Fraunhofer I reported yesterday somewhat into doubt.

Still, there has not been any large movement in coal use from 2010 to 2012, which means that the larger point (nuclear didn’t change that much) is still valid.
