U.S. Energy Information Administration, says:
. . . . . . 100% Iceland,
. . . . . . 100% Paraguay,
. . . . . . 99% Costa Rica,
. . . . . . 98.5% Norway,
. . . . . . 80% Austria,
. . . . . . 75% Brazil, and
. . . . . . 69.4% Denmark,
. . . these countries grids run on:
. . . . . . hydropower,
. . . . . . wind,
. . . . . . geothermal, and
. . . . . . solar.

Large population regions are also, “at or above 100%” including:
. . . . . . Germany’s Mecklenburg-Vorpommern,
. . . . . . Schleswig-Hostein regions,
. . . . . . New Zealand’s South Island,
. . . . . . Denmark’s Samsø island,
. . . . . . Quebec, and
. . . . . . British Columbia.

China’s, “Qinghai Province has just run for,
. . . 7 straight days, entirely on renewable energy.

“Indonesia, has far more than enough pumped hydro storage sites to support a
. . . 100% renewable electricity grid.”

An aggregated fleet of vehicles or chargers,
. . . can act as a [demand response] resource,
. . . shifting load in response to price signals, or operational needs;
for example, vehicle charging could be shifted to the middle of the day,
. . . to absorb high levels of solar generation, and
. . . shifted away from evening hours,
. . . when solar generation disappears, and
. . . system net load peaks.”
