In March Portugal created enough renewable energy to power the entire nation

According to REN, Portugal’s transmission system officer, the nation is likely to have set a record by generating more energy than required to power itself for the whole month of March. The country’s average renewable generation for last month was more than 103%, a rise from the previous record of 99.2% set in 2014. Although water and wind were responsible for supplying the nation with the most electricity in March, Portugal still used some fossil fuel-powered and imported energy. This was due to the unpredictable nature of renewable energy, with the nation relying on the alternative sources to even out supply.
