Electricity Sustainable
January 3, 2024

In 2023, renewable energies accounted for nearly 52% of Germany’s gross electricity consumption, marking the first time the share has surpassed the 50% mark for a full year. This data, revealed by the Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) and the Federal Association of the Energy and Water Industry (BDEW), shows an increase of 5 percentage points from the previous year.

The months of July, May, October, and November saw particularly high proportions of renewable electricity. In June, a new record was set with 9.8 billion kWh of electricity produced from solar energy. Onshore wind energy also reached a new annual record of 113.5 billion kWh. Despite the challenges in achieving a completely climate-neutral power supply, the energy industry is eager to invest in the energy transition.

However, they are often hindered by lengthy approval processes, excessive bureaucracy, and a lack of space. The shift away from fossil fuels requires an expansion of renewable energies in completely new dimensions, not only in Germany but worldwide, to ensure that the 1.5-degree target is achieved.
