Germany may reach its 2020 target for renewable power this year
Germany is close to reaching its 2020 renewable energy target this year after generating 36.4 percent of electricity from renewables in the first half of 2016, Craig Morris reports on energytransition.de. Germany is aiming for a 35 percent renewables share by 2020, not including power exports, unlike the 36.4 percent figure, which comprises energy exports. While Germany may fall slightly short of the target this year, renewable power production increased 5 percent year over year, which is likely to result in 34 percent after a 32.5 percent share in 2015, according to Morris.
