6 German Renewable Energy Charts

One of our readers, Kanaga Gnana, recently sent along a November report from the Fraunhofer Institute that has a number of interesting charts in it. I pulled out 6 for sharing here. Have a look.

In this first one, you can see CSP vs PV vs CPV levelized cost of energy (LCOE) estimates for Germany:

LCOE CSP vs CPV vs PV

In this second one, you can see how those estimates are projected to change over the coming 14 years or so:

LCOE CPV vs PV vs CSP

Here, you can see LCOE estimates across more energy technologies, renewable energy technologies as well as fossil fuels:

LCOE PV vs Wind vs Biogas vs Coal vs Nat Gas

And here are projected LCOE estimates for each of these up to 2030:

In this 5th chart, you can see a 2010 IEA forecast for world solar PV growth, an EPIA (European Photovoltaic Industry Association) forecast for the same, and an average of the two:

In this last one, you can see the wide variation in CPV growth forecasts under an optimistic vs a conservative scenario:

Interesting charts. Bookmark for future referencing. 😉

Former Tesla Battery Expert Leading Lyten Into New Lithium-Sulfur Battery Era — Podcast:



I don't like paywalls. You don't like paywalls. Who likes paywalls? Here at CleanTechnica, we implemented a limited paywall for a while, but it always felt wrong — and it was always tough to decide what we should put behind there. In theory, your most exclusive and best content goes behind a paywall. But then fewer people read it! We just don't like paywalls, and so we've decided to ditch ours. Unfortunately, the media business is still a tough, cut-throat business with tiny margins. It's a never-ending Olympic challenge to stay above water or even perhaps — gasp — grow. So ...
