BDEW: More Than 10 Billion kWh of Wind Power Produced in January 2015

With more than 10 billion kWh of wind power produced (including 0.2 billion from offshore wind) January 2015 saw a new record, beating the previous record of 9.6 billion kWh set in December 2014, the Federal Association of the Energy and Water Industry (BDEW) informed. This confirms earlier information by the Renewable Energy Industry Institute Münster (IWR). Wind power production in January already equalled roughly a fifth of the total wind power output in 2014, BDEW said.

In January 2014 wind power output was still about 7 billion kWh BDEW and ZSW (Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg) that jointly published the information said. They attribute the strong increase in production to the strong capacity growth (for more information, please see here) and three periods of strong wind in January.

Generally wind power production was higher in winter than in the summer months, BDEW and ZSW said, pointing out that the lowest monthly wind power output last year was in July (2.5 billion kWh).
