Final energy consumption: graphic shows shares of renewable energies in Germany

The following graphic shows Germany's final energy consumption, which was just under 2011 TWh in 300. The percentages of all renewable energy sources are compared in the graphic and can be compared with each other.

Presentation of the share of renewable energies in final energy consumption in Germany.

Germany's final energy consumption and the importance of individual renewable energy sources

The following ranking results for the individual renewable energies:

  1. Biomass for heat generation (gaseous and woody bioenergy)
  2. Wind energy
  3. Biomass for electricity generation
  4. Biofuels for the transport sector (liquid bioenergy)
  5. Hydropower
  6. photovoltaics
  7. geothermal
  8. Solar Thermal

The graphic impressively shows the high Importance of bioenergy the final energy consumption, which is made up of electricity, heat and fuels. Currently, the renewable energy sources can be found primarily in the electricity market, which is remunerated via the Renewable Energy Sources Act (EEG) and thereby leads the energy transition. Increasing the role of renewable energies in the heating and fuel market is the necessary goal for a successful energy transition.

Many thanks to the Fachagentur Nachwachsende Rohstoffe (FNR) for creating the graphic showing the composition of final energy consumption in Germany.
