Germany tops 20% renewables in power.

The German Association of Energy and Water Industries (BDEW) highlights the 20.8% share of power production in the first half of 2011. As Der Spiegel reports, there has been a steady increase from 5% in 2000 to 18% in 2010, with a target of at least 35% of production from renewables by 2020. The opposition claims 40% or even more is realistic. Wind and biomass are the pillars today but the main driver of the 2011 development has been photovoltaics.
