Wind power is become a force to reckon with in the energy market
The current wind energy report presents the latest figures: in Germany, one third of the gross electricity generation came from renewable energy sources in 2017 - only 16% was produced by wind turbines.25 Jun 2018 Barbara Rusch
The figures in the recently published Wind Energy Report 2017 of the Fraunhofer Institute for Energy Economics and Energy Systems IEE speak volumes: compared to 2016, the contribution of wind to gross German electricity generation increased by more than 34% from 80 TWh to 107.5 TWh. By contrast, the proportions of energy sources such as brown coal (23%), hard coal (14%) and nuclear energy (12%) continue to decline.
"The production of electricity with wind turbines - onshore and offshore - is an indispensable part of our energy supply system", says publisher Prof. Dr. Kurt Rohrig, summarizing. "It's now important to continue with this development and create the conditions for successful integration into a future energy supply system." What is referred to as sectoral coupling is in fact one of the most pressing practical problems in the increasingly dynamic energy market.
