Germany Renewables Report

BMI View:   Germany's renewables expansion, although hugely successful in terms of growth, has had major implications on the country's power sector - and wider economy. These include elevated electricity costs, grid instability, an erosion of economic competitiveness and a fall in wholesale electricity prices.

German's renewables expansion has been undeniably successful in terms of capacity growth over the last three years and the contribution renewables generation makes to the country's electricity mix. Focusing primarily on wind and solar power, the country has firmly established itself as the European bellwether for green energy. The government has established a target for electricity generation from renewable sources, aiming to expand renewables so that they contribute 35% to total electricity generation in the country by 2020, and 80% by 2050.

Recent developments within the German renewables market include:

  • According to the German Association of Energy and Water Industries, renewable electricity contributed to nearly 30% of the country's total gross power consumption in the first half of 2014, primarily from solar and wind generation.

  • In August 2014, German engineering and services group Bilfinger secured a contract worth more than USD134mn to install the turbine foundations for the 288MW Sandbank offshore wind farm, 90km off the German island of Sylt. Bilfinger expects to complete its work in February 2016.

  • The 400MW Bard 1 offshore wind power project was successfully commissioned at the end of August 2013, followed by the 325MW Thorton Bank wind farm in September 2013.

  • In March 2014, Vestas Wind Systems secured a contract to supply turbines for the 72.6MW Buergerwindpark Eider wind farm in the German state of Schleswig-Holstein. The order has been placed by the farm's developer BWP Eider GmbH & Co. The contract also includes a 15-year service agreement. The project is expected to go online at the end of 2014.
