Total installed wind power capacity in Germany 2008-2019

Wind power capacity in Germany has increased significantly since 2008, reaching 60,822 megawatts by 2019. This was an increase of almost 2,000 megawatts when compared with the previous year. Onshore wind accounted for the majority of installations. In 2019, combined capacity on wind farms on land reached 53,315 megawatts.

Energy production

As wind power capacity has increased, so has electricity generation. In 2000, generation from wind stood at 9.5 billion kilowatt-hours. By 2018, this had increased to 111.5 billion kilowatt-hours, 92.2 billion of which came from onshore wind. Germany is the leader in wind power electricity generation in Europe. Wind power plays an important role in Germany’s renewable energy mix. In 2018, it made up 17.3 percent of renewable sources used to generate electricity.

Supplementary notes

The source adds the following information: "The renewable power capacity data shown in these tables represents the maximum net generating capacity of power plants and other installations that use renewable energy sources to produce electricity. For most countries and technologies, the data reflects the capacity installed and connected at the end of the calendar year. The data is presented in megawatts (MW) rounded to the nearest one megawatt, with figures between zero and 0.5MW shown as a 0.
Data has been obtained from a variety of sources, including: the IRENA questionnaire; official statistics; industry association reports; and other reports and news articles."
