Green electricity

Green electricity is not a legally regulated term, but a colloquial term for electricity that was obtained from renewable energy sources. These include, for example, wind energy, solar energy, bioenergy or geothermal energy.

In contrast to green electricity, conventionally generated electricity should be mentioned. It comes from nuclear energy or fossil fuels such as coal, crude oil and natural gas.

By the way: In Germany, government aids (via KfW loan) for installing a charging station or wallbox are only available if the electricity being used for operation is proven to come from 100% renewable energies.
