Energy supplies

Greenhouse gas emissions in Germany have been dropping in all source categories for many years. The efforts to improve efficiency and reduce emissions are also showing tangible results in the energy industry. Since 1990, the CO2 emissions in this sector have reduced by almost 30 per cent to just over 700 mega-tonnes of CO2-equivalent. It is planned to reduce this by another 25 per cent by 2030.
