Germany’s 100% clean energy moment

Germany began the year with 100% of its electricity needs being provided by renewable sources for the first time, according to new statistics.

For a short time at 6am on 1 January, high winds and low demand, produced the conditions to make this possible. Figures from the Federal Network Agency show that 85% came from wind energy.

It is the latest landmark moment for clean power generation in Germany. Last month we reported that over a third of Germany’s gross electricity consumption in 2017 was produced from renewable energy.
