Strong winds and plenty of sunshine boosted renewable energy output in Germany to 49.4 terrawatt-hours in the first three months of 2019, up nearly 25% on the 39.6TWh generated in the same period of 2018.

The data came from the Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Wurttemberg (ZSW) and the Federal Association of the Energy and Water Industry (BDEW).

 

Onshore wind contributed the largest share with 36.2TWh, up from 28.9TWh between January and the end of March last year.
Offshore wind increased to 6.8TWh this year from 5.1TWh in 2017, while solar power output was 6.4TWh this year, compared with 5.59TWh, ZSW and BDEW said.

Meanwhile, gains were capped by the lengthy U.S.-China trade dispute and its bearish impact on the global economic growth. Brent crude price edged higher by 0.3% to 72.18 USD/bbl, while WTI futures were only 0.1% up at 63.13 USD/bbl.
