Sustainable Saxony-Anhalt

From "fDiintelligence", October/November 2021

The German State Is Pushing to Be a Hub for Green Technologies

In a year beset by devastating floods and record heat waves, the need to speed up the energy transition has been brought into sharp focus. The German state of Saxony-Anhalt is playing its part to address this fundamental challenge. In 2019, 61,5% of Saxony-Anhalt´s electricity was generated by renewable energy sources, exceeding the German average of 46.1%, according to local government data. While challanges remain along it´s path to phase out coal by 2038, particularly in southern Saxony-Anhalt which has a history of lignite-based energy, the private sector is working on broad range of solutions.
