German dependency on foreign energy resources
With the exception of lignite Germany is almost entirely dependent on supplies of energy resources from abroad. For uranium and and hard coal the import quota is as high as 100 percent. Reflecting renewables, the overall import dependency of our energy supply was 71 percent in 2021. Only the further expansion of renewables can lead to greater independence in foreign energy supply.
To reduce its dependency on foreign energy resources, Germany needs to continue investing in renewable energy technologies and grid infrastructure. Developing energy storage solutions and promoting energy efficiency measures can also help to reduce reliance on imported resources.
