Fraunhofer ISE: Renewables Reach 31% Share in First Half of 2014, More Than Lignite – Another Electricity Export Record Possible

Renewable energy sources generated 81 TWh in the first half of 2014, accounting for 31% of German electricity production, Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE) said. Solar and wind power contributed 45 TWh or 17%, increasing production by 28% respectively 19%. In total renewable energy production clearly outnumbered power production from lignite (69.7 TWh), the single most important energy source. Electricity exports rose again by 27% to 18.3 TWh.
