Portugal ran solely on renewable energy for six consecutive days, generating electricity from wind and waves. The country’s largest energy company reported that the conditions continued for five additional days, with periods of surplus energy exported to Spain. The record-breaking run of 149 hours of renewable energy generation surpassed the previous record. The use of wind and hydroelectric power played a significant role in this achievement, as solar power is less prevalent due to the country’s weather patterns. The next step for Portugal is the development of deepwater offshore wind farms.
