The beauty of renewable energy wind power and solar energy feed-in of electricity in Germany 2015
wind power and solar energy feed-in of electricity in Germany 2015
Based onthe time seriesby Paul-Frederik Bach this illustration shows the combined power generation from wind (dark grey) and sun (light gray) for the entire year 2015 (hourly values) in Germany. (highres png download) About 122 terawatt hours of electricity (TWh) were generated by wind (85 TWh) and sun (37 TWh). For comparison, Switzerland’s total electricity production amounted to 58 TWh in 2015 and 64 TWh in Austria. In other words: In Germany wind and sun produced more electricity than in both neighboring countries all power generation types together. And altogether, renewable power production (wind, pv, biomass, water) was about 190 TWh in 2015. The total production of electricity in Germany was around 645 terawatt hours in 2015, so nearly every third kilowatt hour was generated by renewable sources.
Peak-feed-in of wind power was on December 21, 2015 with around 35 GW. Peak-feed-in of solar power was on April 21, 2015 with around 27 GWp.
