The period without fossil fuels began last Friday, March 9 and ended this Monday, March 12.

Renewable power plants have generated more than 100% of Portugal's energy for 69 hours, according to local media, citing the Portuguese Association of Renewable Energies (APREN).

The period without fossil fuels began last Friday, March 9 and ended this Monday, March 12. According to data from the Portuguese electricity company Redes Energéticas Nacionais (REN), the country's green plants produced 521 GWh in the period in question, while national electricity consumption stood at 408 GWh. Wind power was the main power, meeting demand for 65% of the 69 hour period.

With regard to annual energy consumption, Portuguese renewable energy plants -hydraulic, wind, solar, geothermal and biomass- have an average coverage of 54% of energy demand, which allows a reduction in imports of fossil fuels in around of 750 million euros (USD 928.2m) per year.

Portugal's renewable energy production on March 13, excluding large hydro plants, was 84.8 GWh, similar to the previous day, according to REN statistics.

Wind farms in the country produced 53.8 GWh, an increase of 2.09%, with a peak production of 3,188.0 MW. Solar power plants produced a total of 1.8 GWh, compared to 2.1 GWh on March 12.
