Additional to the references I want to create a list of publication which should be ordered by year. Audrey has already published a solution that does something similar for a CV. However, with every first entry for a certain year an indent is inserted, which I want to avoid (in the figure the blue marked indent).

How can I achieve that all lines and entries are left aligned and no indent is created at the first line of a certain year?

The blue marked indent should be avoided

The definition of myPublicationListYearStyle reserves too little space for the year. When there is too little space for the list label, the remaining entry gets pushed to the right a bit.

With

\defbibenvironment{myPublicationListYearStyle}{
 \list{%
  \iffieldequals{year}{\bibyear}
  {}
  {\printfield{year}\savefield{year}{\bibyear}}%
 }{%
  \setlength{\labelwidth}{\labelnumberwidth}%
  \setlength{\leftmargin}{\labelwidth}%
  \setlength{\labelsep}{\biblabelsep}%
  \setlength{\itemsep}{\bibitemsep}%
  \leftmargin\labelwidth%
  \advance\leftmargin\labelsep%
 }%
 \renewcommand*{\makelabel}[1]{\hss##1}%
}%
{\endlist}
{\item}

you reserve the same amount of space for the year as you reserve for the numeric labels in the other bibliography. The largest label in the bibliography is "[10]", but the years are longer than that ("2000").

It is easiest to manually reserve a suitable amount of space by setting \labelwidth to a sensible value (in the example I chose 2em).

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[backend=biber, maxnames=99, giveninits=true]{biblatex}


\defbibenvironment{myPublicationListYearStyle}
  {\list
     {\iffieldequals{year}{\bibyear}
        {}
        {\printfield{year}\savefield{year}{\bibyear}}}
     {\setlength{\labelwidth}{2em}%
      \setlength{\leftmargin}{\labelwidth}%
      \setlength{\labelsep}{\biblabelsep}%
      \setlength{\itemsep}{\bibitemsep}%
      \leftmargin\labelwidth%
      \advance\leftmargin\labelsep}%
   \renewcommand*{\makelabel}[1]{\hss##1}}%
