Imports of natural gas came from Russia, Norway and the Netherlands, comprising 90% of Germany's total gas consumption, domestic prodcution was 0.494 Quadrillion BTUs.
The largest share of indigenous fossil fuels is that of coal. 1.654 Quadrillion BTUs were produced and 25% of the total energy consumption was based on it.
So, you could say Germany's consumption of fossil fuels is highly dependent on imports from other countries. And therefor it is very vulnerable to supply disruptions and price changes - likely one of the reasons, why pushing the establishment of renewable energy generation is on the political agenda for a while now.
Has anybody else had a look and found something interesting?
