  • Photovoltaic                                  890 h/a

  • Pumped storage hydroelectric       950 h/a

  • Wind                                          1,520 h/a

  • Mineral oil                                   1,870 h/a

  • Natural gas                                 3,150 h/a

  • Run-of-river hydroelectric            3,530 h/a

  • Hard coal                                   3,580 h/a

  • Biomass                                     5,000 h/a

  • Lignite                                        6,610 h/a

  • Nuclear                                       7,710 h/a
