The energy transition in German is making progress. In 2015, hydropower, wind, sun and biomass provided about 35% of electricity. The ambitious transition to climate-friendly energy provision is moving ahead in all federal states. But from region to region there are huge differences. These have now been identified by scientists at the Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ). Their detailed study on the spatial distribution of the German electricity supply has resulted in a detailed energy-transition map. It clearly shows pioneers and stragglers among all 12,066 German municipalities, and shows how Germany can stay true to its role as a global example into the future.
