Portugal's Renewable Energy Record: A Harbinger of What's Possible
In what is being hailed as a major achievement, Portugal just generated all of its electricity from renewable sources for more than four days in a row.
According to an analysis of national figures by the Sustainable Land System Association in collaboration with the Portuguese Renewable Energy Association (APREN), from the morning of May 7 until the early evening on May 11—a total of 107 consecutive hours—”Electricity consumption in the country was fully covered by solar, wind and hydro power, ” the Guardian reports.
APREN president António Sá Costa called it “a harbinger of what will become reality in the near future, which will be 365 days a year.”
“This is a significant achievement for a European country, but what seems extraordinary today will be commonplace in Europe in just a few years,” the Guardian quotes James Watson, CEO of SolarPower Europe, as saying. “The energy transition process is gathering momentum and records such as this will continue to be set and broken across Europe.”
