The current government is trying to expand renewables strongly as a response to the energy crisis and to tackle climate change. This question aims at electricity, not primary energy consumption.

Currently "grid expansion is 6,000 kilometres and seven years behind schedule."

Renewable energies will account for more than 60 % of gross electricity consumption.

Germany's net electricity generation was slighter lower in 2022 due to a drop in consumption. The share of renewables in gross electricity consumption was 45%, up from 40% in 2021. –Monitoring report 2023 from Bundesnetzagentur

I assume this is the metric we aim for with "total energy consumption".

@marktwse Yes, gross electricity consumption.
