Annual net power generation from renewable energy sources is set to overtake that from fossil fuels in Germany for the first time in 2019, according to calculations by research institute Fraunhofer ISE.
For the first 11 months of the year, renewables generated a total of 24 terawatt hours more electricity that fossil energies, Professor Bruno Burger from the institute wrote on Twitter recently.
The government has set the goal of renewables accounting for 65 percent of Germany’s total power consumption by the year 2030.
In addition, it is phasing out nuclear power generation and aims to make the country nuclear free by 2022.
Two German federal states, namely Schleswig-Holstein and Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, have achieved the goal of “100-percent renewable energy,” generating more electricity from renewables than they consume.
