Dec. 27 (Bloomberg) — Renewable energy currently makes up 16 percent of total electricity consumption in Germany, Handelsblatt reported, citing an industry study.

That means the country has exceeded the European Union’s 2010 goal of 12.5 percent, according to a study by the Berlin- based utility association BDEW, the newspaper said in a preview of an article scheduled to be published tomorrow.

Electricity consumption fell by 5 percent in 2009 and the production of renewable energy rose to 93 billion kilowatt hours from 92.7 billion KWh the year earlier, Handelsblatt said.
