German power market developments June 2020 vs. June 2019: More electricity from natural gas while coal-fired generation is massively reduced. Electricity demand continues to be weak and also renewables lose compared to June 2019.

Strommarkt-Vergleich Juni 2020/Juni 2019: Deutlich mehr Strom aus Erdgas, Kohleverstromung lässt hingegen massiv nach. Stromverbrauch weiter gering und auch EE verlieren im Vergleich zum Vorjahresmonat.

German power generation in June 2020: Renewables (especially PV) have a hard time beating the exceptionally hot June 2019. However, due to the continued weaker electricity demand, the share remains at 46%. Most powerful force is natural gas, lignite only ranks 3rd.

Stromerzeugung Juni 2020: Den EE (besonders PV) fällt es schwer, den außergewöhnlich heißen Juni 2019 zu toppen. Aufgrund der geringen Stromnachfrage bleibt der Anteil aber auch im Juni 2020 bei 46%. Stärkste Kraft wird Erdgas, Braunkohle landet nur noch auf Platz 3.

Unsere Halbjahresauswertung der Stromerzeugung hat ergeben: CO₂-Emissionen sinken deutlich, Kohlekraftwerke machen keine Gewinne, Erneuerbare decken 50 Prozent des Stromverbrauchs, Stromnachfrage weiter auf geringem Niveau #Energiewende @FabianHein8…
