Germany recently broke its record for renewable energy generation by having
. . . 85% of its electricity come from renewable sources,
. . . over the last weekend of April.

Most of Germany’s coal-fired power stations,
. . . were not even operating on Sunday, April 30th.

“Nuclear power sources,
. . . which are planned to be completely phased out by 2022,
. . . were also severely reduced.”

On April 30,
. . . the amount of renewable energy in the grid was so high,
. . . that electricity actually fell into negative figures,
. . . because supply was greater than the demand.
