"In a report based on quarterly figures released by market research group AG Energiebilanzen (AGEB), Agora found that in addition to increased heating oil, the proportion of electricity generated by wind turbines declined, resulting in more power generated by coal and natural gas power plants. This led to an increase in CO₂ emissions of 3 million tonnes compared to the same period in 2020 and a a total of 169 million tonnes. Taking into account primary energy consumption, which also includes upstream processes such as the extraction, transport or processing of raw materials, the proportion of individual energy sources increased by 26 percent for lignite, 9 percent for hard coal and 11 percent for natural gas."
