In July 2017, the production of variable renewable energy sources (vRES) fell by approx. 17 per cent compared to the previous month. With a drop of around 23 per cent onshore and offshore technologies, were particularly affected. In contrast, the sales values for wind-onshore and wind-offshore increased by around 20 percent and 16 per cent for solar power plants compared to June 2017.
