Indicator: Renewable energy

A graph shows the share of renewable energies in gross final energy consumption and gross electricity consumption. The share in gross electricity consumption rose from 6.3 percent in 2000 to 42.1 percent in 2019. The share in gross final energy consumption rose from 6.2 to 17.1 percent from 2004 to 2019.

The share of renewable energies in electricity consumption increased from 6.3 % to 42.1 % between 2000 and 2019.The share of renewables in gross final energy consumption increased from 6.2 % (2004) to 17.1 % (2019).The National Energy Concept target value of 35 % for 2020 for gross electricity consumption was already achieved in 2017. For gross final energy consumption, it is possible to achieve t... read more

Indicator: GHG emissions avoided through the use of renewables

A graph shows the trend for greenhouse gas emissions avoided through the use of renewables for power, heat and transport. 27.8 million tonnes of CO2 equivalents were avoided in 1990, and 201.4 million tonnes in 2019.

Renewables are increasingly replacing fossil fuels in the fields of electricity generation, heat production and transport.The annual greenhouse gas emissions saved in this way are more than seven times higher than in 1990.The Federal Government intends to considerably expand the share of renewables to further reduce greenhouse gas emissions. read more
