Highly industrialized Germany has set a new record in March 2019. More than half of its power was generated from wind, solar and other renewables.
According to latest figures from German solar research institute Fraunhofer ISE, renewable energy accounted for 54.45% of net electricity generation in March. The monthly performance was largely attributable to high wind power generation, which accounted for 34.2% of net electricity generation for the month, reaching a peak of 57.7% on March 9.
The previous record was set in May 2018, when wind power, solar PV, and other renewables accounted for 48.6% of total net electricity generation.
