Germany Sets New Record With 85% Renewable Energy Usage In One Day


Germany has become the standard of using sustainable energy. Over the last weekend of April, 85 percent of the energy the country generated came from renewable sources. Weather and the extended holiday weekend played a major role in the production, but it shows how close we can get to running solely on this kind of energy.

Renewable sources are any energy that’s generated by wind, water, solar, wood, and biomass. That 85 percent obtained on Sunday, April 30th, inside Germany set a new record for the country. Many factors made this achievable. May Day is a public holiday celebrated with many business and services closed. Most of the power stations ran by coal was shut down on Sunday as a mixture of sunny and windy weather would be able to generate lots of electricity by itself.
