Despite the pandemic, which has not left Germany economically untouched, the country has presented impressive figures on the energy turnaround in recent weeks and months. Scientists and market experts have measured a record value for renewable energies in the German electricity mix for the summer month of July. Up to 50 percent of electricity generation came from solar energy, wind power and other renewable sources.

And Germany is also on the right track in another important area of energy system transformation: the mobility transition. This can be seen from the high number of applications in the federal government’s funding programme. In July alone, 20,000 applications for funding were submitted – more than ever before! If the car industry pushes into the market with more new models in the second half of the year, observers expect a further increase in demand.
