Closures of nuclear power plants wiped out emissions reductions from less coal power.
Germany installed 1.5 GW (3.9%) more in solar capacity but got 1.2 TWh (3%) less electricity from solar in 2016 because it was less sunny than 2015.
- Germany installed 5 GW (11%) more wind capacity but wind power decreased 1.4 TWh (2%) because it was less windy than 2015.
