    Over October 2018. A windy month of course, but throw in a chunk of solar and the country should be able to come close to 100% renewable electricity for most of the year without any huge investments

    I wonder how much it actually provided though. The important element of that article is that it says "equivalent of 98%".

    Thats not the same as "provided 98%".
    i.e. if it over delivers during the night its no use unless they have a way to store it or use it.

    Still impressive though that they managed 16 days where wind exceeded demand so their overall must be up around 70% ish maybe?

    In context, Ireland is at about 30% on average so we've a ways to go.
