Electricity from renewables topped coal in Germany for first time in 2018
Coal is now in Germanys rear-view mirror. In 2018, 40% of the countrys electricity mix came from wind, solar, biomass and hydroelectric sources. Thats up 4.3 percentage points over 2017, and topped coal generation (38% of the total) for the first time, according to the Fraunhofer research group. The bulk of the clean power came from onshore and offshore wind capacity (20.4% of total output) and solar (8.4% of total output).
Germany, Europes largest economy, is steadily retiring its coal and nuclear power plants as it seeks to cut carbon emissions over the coming decades. The country will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 40% next year, and by 95% in 2050, compared to 1990 levels.
