Renewable energies in figures

The diagram shows how the shares of renewable energies for electricity, heat and transport are developing. While electricity steadily until 2020, the development of heat and transport shares stagnated for several years. The share of renewables in electricity fell significantly in 2021 (to 41.5 percent), but rose to a new high in 2023 (51.2 percent). The share of renewables in the heat sector reaches 18.8 percent in 2023 and in the transport sector 7.3 percent.

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