The beauty of renewable energy wind power and solar energy feed-in of electricity in Germany 2014
Based on the time series by Paul-Frederik Bach this illustration show the combined power generation from wind (dark grey) and sun (light gray) for the entire year 2014 (hourly values) in Germany. (highres download) About 84,2 terawatt hours of electricity were generated by wind and sun. The total demand for electricity in Germany was around 614 terawatt hours in 2014.
Peak-feed-in of wind power was on December 12, 2014 with around 30 GW (daily production of wind power: 562 GWh). Peak-feed-in of solar power was on June 6, 2014 with around 24 GWp (daily production of solar power: 212 GWh).
The highest feed-in of wind- and solar power combined was on April 14, 2014 with around 38 GW (daily production of wind- and solar power both: 561 GWh)
