Probably GDP.

But there are so many economic measures could be anything.  Smiley

@Bili. I read that Germany’s CO2 emissions went up in 2015 despite a rapidly increasing share of renewables in electricity production.
Also, by high I meant the span yes and it has nothing to do with being my first or second post (we have to start from somewhere)  ballspin

Ummm, the chart only goes up to 2010. Or are you referring to some other article elsewhere?

If the latter, remember that CO2 emissions cover the emissions in country, including coal burnt for electricity which has been generated for export.

If energy consumption has stayed level (at 125%) from 1990 (unification) until 2010 and CO2 emissions have dropped very little in that time as well, then that means that the entire switch to renewable sources has had only a very small net effect.

The BIP(GDP) figure can be ignored as that can change from many different reasons other than energy generation/use (how is it measured, switch from manufacturing to services, imports/exports etc). I suppose the nuclear switch-off has balanced the reduction in use of coal for generation and increased RE.

why did the CO2 shoot up between 1990 and 1991?

was there no CO2 in the East

The graph only shows data for West Germany up to 1990.

The chart shows three colored lines. As the legend would suggest the blue means "Total GDP", red means the carbon dioxide emission and the green means the total amount of power consumption. Looking at the chart, it means that the Germany has boosted its economy while using more renewable energy. Carbon emission slowly declined from the year 1991-2010. All of that while maintaining overall power consumption.
