Two German states hit 100% renewable electricity

The German states of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern and Schleswig-Holstein generated more renewable power in 2015 than households and businesses in each state consumed. Germany has 16 federal states, three of which are city-states, leaving 13 area states known as Flächenländer. Renewable energy production is easier in Germany’s rural areas than in cities, and low population density means that power consumption is also lower making it easier for rural states to reach 100 per cent renewable electricity.
