Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Third-quarter numbers are out about electricity production in Germany (data based on EEX numbers so it may be short of 100% coverage). Instead of translating the news report, I do a table:

Generation modeQ1-Q3 2012Q1-Q3 2011Change
Wind32.6 TWh29.5 TWh+10%
Solar25.0 TWh16.0 TWh+56%
Wind + solar57.6 TWh45.5 TWh+21%

The article mentions the seasonal natural balancing between wind and solar; numbers for the last two months:

Generation modeAugust 2012September 2012
Wind2.16 TWh3.02 TWh
Solar3.88 TWh2.91 TWh
Wind + solar6.04 TWh5.93 TWh
