|Definition of indicators (Taken from the official translation of the German Sustainable Development Strategy)||
The indicator reflects the share of electricity from renewable energy sources in gross electricity consumption.
|Target and intention of the German Government (Taken from the official translation of the German Sustainable Development Strategy)||
Switching to renewables, natural energy sources that constantly regenerate, can reduce demand for fossil fuels. As a result, dependence on imports of conventional fuels would be reduced, as would the release of energy-related emissions, which would limit the extent of climate change. The German Government had therefore set itself the aim of increasing the share of electricity from renewable sources in gross electricity consumption to at least 35% by 2020 and at least 65% by 2030.
The data published in the indicator report 2021 is as of 31.12.2020. The data shown on the DNS-Online-Platform is updated regularly, so that more current data may be available online than published in the indicator report 2021.
