  • German emissions have been rising since 2009.

  • 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 2.1 TWh (2.6%) because it was less windy than 2015.
