Germany likely to pass 50% mark for renewable power this year

-Germany is likely to generate more than 50% of its power from renewable energy this year but needs to ramp up the speed of its transition towards the end of the decade, Economy Minister Robert Habeck said on Monday. With demand for electricity on the rise, renewables would have to account for 80% of power generation by 2030, Habeck told a conference organized by the Heinrich Boell foundation in Berlin.
"We won't get there at the current pace," he said.
The economy minister, whose portfolio also includes energy and climate action, spoke of a boom in the solar power industry, with this year's target of achieving 9-gigawatt capacity expected to be reached.
