In 2016, Germany has been using more renewable energy sources (RES) than ever before, and almost a third of the electricity has received from the RES, writes portal Renewable Energy World.
The article stated that, according to the analysis of the German Association for the energy industry (BDWE) and the Center for Solar Energy (ZSW), Germany received 32% of electrical energy from the sun, wind and other renewable energy sources. More specifically, Germany has received 191 billion kilowatt hours from RES in the last year, which is a significant increase compared to 187 billion kilowatt hours produced in the previous year.
According to the plans of the German government, the share of renewable energy in electricity production is expected to reach a level of 35% by 2020, and this country is clearly on the right track to achieve this.
