7 New Germany Renewable Energy Charts

March 18th, 2013 by  


Professor Dr. Bruno Burger of the Fraunhofer Institute on March 11 released a report on renewable energy data for Germany up through the end of February. The whole report is an interesting read, but I’m pulling out some of the most interesting charts and graphs if you’d just like a snapshot.

1. As I think we reported previously, solar power capacity has passed up wind power capacity in Germany. Here are the totals as of February 1, 2013:

2. However, being winter time, a lot more electricity is being produced from wind turbines than solar panels at the moment:

3. Despite what you might have heard from Fossil Nukes, Germany is still a big net exporter of electricity:

4. As we can see from Germany’s weekly solar power production chart, spring is coming close:

5. Here’s a weekly power production chart for wind power:

6. And here’s a combined chart:

Again, check out the full Fraunhofer report for more charts and such.
