Portugal produced more power from clean energy sources in March than it actually needed, marking the first time in the 21st century that renewables have topped 100% of its production. But a dearth of energy connections with the rest of Europe remains problematic. Increasing renewable energy capacity is one of the key pillars of the Energy Union and in the month of March, Portugal was regularly able to meet 100% of its energy needs predominantly through hydro and wind power. According to the Iberian nation’s transmission system operator, REN, renewable energy output reached 4,812GWh, surpassing Portugal’s total electricity needs for March, which only topped 4,647GWh. That meant that the average for the month reached 103.6% from renewables, outstripping the previous contemporary record of 99.2%, set back in February 2014. In the last 40 years, Portugal has not managed to match March’s efforts. In fact, during the same period last year, renewable energy was only able to meet 62% of Portugal’s electricity needs. Green MEP Claude Turmes praised Portugal’s “impressive” progress, citing it as evidence that the EU should support a renewable energy target of more than 27% for 2030. source: EURACTIV.com #portugal#renewableenergy#magnumcap#evse#energy#energystorage#electricmobility#ev#electricvehicles#evcharging#fastcharging#solarenergy#renewableenergy#energymanagement#energyefficiency#co2zero#transport#decarbonisation#decarbonization#v2g#smartcharging
