German renewables in electricity generation exceeded 30% in first half.

Solarserver: “Energy generation of German solar PV installations increased by 28% compared to the first half of 2013, wind grew by around 19% according to new figures published by the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE, Freiburg).”
“The first half of 2014 was characterized by mild temperatures and high electricity production from wind energy and solar photovoltaics.
In June 2014 German solar photovoltaic (PV) systems have produced twice as much electricity than wind turbines. During the first six months PV systems and wind turbines together generated more than 45 terawatt hours (TWh), representing approximately 17% of the nation’s total electricity generation. The renewable energy sources solar, wind, water and biomass produced a total of about 81 TWh and reached a share of about 31% of overall electricity in the first half of 2014.”
