Renewable energies in figures

The diagram shows how the shares of renewable energies for electricity, heat and transport are developing. While electricity has shown a continuous positive development, the development for heating and transport has stagnated for several years. The share of renewables in electricity reached 45.4 percent in 2020, 15.2 percent in heating and 7.3 percent in transport.

Up-to-date and quality controlled data on the development of renewable energies in Germany is an important basis for the evaluation of Germany's energy transition. The Working Group on Renewable Energy Statistics (AGEE-Stat) provides this data for international reporting obligations as well as for the interested public. read more
