German energy is now more green than black

Germany has the eyes of the in energy and miljökretsar for his radical decision to put on the energy system, not just away from fossil fuels, but from nuclear power. The latter was decided after the accident in japanese Fukushima in 2011.

of the nuclear decommissioning met the energy conversion critique for the benefit of coal, the greens, the springs did not have time to develop sufficiently, and thus increase carbon dioxide emissions.

But the year 2018 year went to renewable sources, for the first time about the coal in the German electricity generation, shows new figures from the research organisation Fraunhofer, as Reuters has taken part of.

more than 40 per cent of electricity generation came last year from renewable sources, while 38 per cent came from coal.

as late as 2010, the proportion of renewable in electricity production, only 19 per cent. Thus, it is more than double in eight years.

Germany's goal is that 65 per cent of energy to come from renewable sources by the year 2030.

favorable weather conditions that increased solar and wind electricity in the last year.

But Bruno Burger, who wrote the energirapporten for the organization Frauhofer, do not think that the share of renewable will drop this year.

– We will not fall below 40 per cent in 2019, since it is now built more renewable energy plants, and weather patterns will not change so radically, " he says to Reuters.

it is wind power that is greatest, followed by solar power and hydropower.

The single biggest source of German electricity generation is still domestic brown coal (24 per cent). Number two will wind (20 per cent).

Hydropower is not as big in Germany as in Sweden and accounts for only 3.2 per cent of electricity production.
