Next Year Renewable Market Share in Germany Estimated As 28.7 Percent

Yesterday’s announcement of a 6.24 cent surcharge in Germany came with a lot of interesting reports attached.

One assumption behind this number is that the renewable electricity generation from all sources will be 149.2 TWh next year, see this report (page 6).

Electricity use is estimated as around 520 TWh in this other report dealing specifically with this part of the overall estimate, on page 14.

Using these two numbers, we find a renewable share of 28.7 percent. If that estimate turns out to be true, Germany is clearly on a good path to achieve the goal of 35 percent until 2020 in Article 1 of Law on Priority for Renewable Energy.
