Germany sets new record on renewables

germany renewables recordAccording to Think Progress : ” On Sunday, Germany’s impressive streak of renewable energy milestones continued, with renewable energy generation surging to a record portion — nearly 75 percent — of the country’s overall energy demand.”

” With wind and solar in particular filling such a huge portion of the country’s power demand, electricity prices actually dipped into the negative for much of the afternoon, according to Renewables International. “

Three quarters of the electricity of a major economy coming from renewables ? So soon ? One can only rejoice. Thanks Germany for showing us time and again the way forward.
