The effects of the climate protection programme 2030 on the share of renewable energies in the demand for electricity

The EWI analysis shows that Germany could significantly miss the 65 percent target for the share of renewable energies in electricity demand. An EWI team has calculated that gross electricity consumption could rise to 748 terawatt hours (TWh) per year by 2030. At the same time, electricity generation from renewables would rise to 345 TWh per year. The share of renewable energies would thus be only 46 percent instead of the targeted 65 percent. Depending on the assumptions regarding the evolution of electricity demand and the expansion of renewable energies, a range of 39 % to 67 % results.
