In 2023, the proportion of renewable energy in German power grids achieves a 55% share.

The share of renewables on Germany's power grids rose by 6.6 percentage points to 55% of the total last year, as Europe's largest economy moves closer to its 2030 target. Germany aims to achieve an 80% share of green power in its energy mix by 2030, having phased out nuclear power and working towards reducing coal generation, with remaining gas plants primarily serving as grid backup. Breaking down the renewable sources, offshore wind contributed 31.1%, solar accounted for 12.1%, and biomass for 8.4%, while hydropower and other renewables made up the remaining 3.4%.

                      Germany is doing well in adopting renewable energy in their country's power consumption hence reducing the use of fossil fuels. This is a step in the right direction Kudos.
