dpa interview: Green energy set to be the number one source of electricity in 2013

In an interview with the German Press Agency (dpa), IWR Director Dr. Norbert Allnoch has outlined the current situation with regard to renewables in Germany. For 2012 IWR is expecting electricity generation from renewables to reach 140 billion kWh (2011: 122 billion). In 2013 green energies could already overtake lignite (2011: 150 billion kWh). In 2012, nuclear energy will drop below the 100 billion KWh mark for the first time since the start of the 1980s.
