German power emissions dropped 1.9 percent, according to the data.


It was either down slightly, or up slightly. My source says up slightly.

However, emissions from the electricity sector increased by 2-6% during 2011, the agency said, while Germany's energy situation was supported by a mild winter that reduced demand for heating by around 9% with significant drops in demand for gas and heating oil for this purpose.

I searched the English language press releases at the Federal Environment Agency website, but didn't see anything specifically referring to electricity use for 2011.

I'm guessing the mild winter was the biggest factor in there not being much change.
