PORTUGAL RAN 4 DAYS ENTIRELY ON RENEWABLE ENERGY.
If that isn’t impressive I do not know what is.
It is refreshing to see that our governments are finally looking into the countries own riches and make use of them.
The main sources of Portugal’s energy is coming from biofuels and waste. Wind and hydropower and adding increasingly larger amounts, with geothermal and solar just starting to take off.
This happened from the 7th of May to the 11th of May – Saturday through to Wednesday.
But it’s not only Portugal, Germany has also been running on renewable energy and Denmark has also started.
True, it is not a common practice, we have to see this as the try-outs for the future, a greener less poluted future.
Maybe my little Iberian country will take advantage of its position and wind consumption as much as the sun and will be able not only to run efficiently and permanently on renewable energy and even export it!
Let’s go people, let’s make the world a better place.
