Since the 1990s, consumption of biomass in Germany has grown steadily. In 2012, bioenergy accounted for 7.0 percent of total final electricity consumption, 9.4 percent of total final heat consumption (91% of total renewable heat) and 5.7 percent of total fuel consumption. The industry has set itself a number of concrete goals for the future: 18 percent of electricity, 15 percent of heat and 13 percent of fuel consumption should be generated from bioenergy sources by 2030.
