SCHLESWIG-HOLSTEIN, GERMANY - Germany's windiest area to reach 100% renewable energy in 2014

Report (2014): While some countries around the world try to figure out how to deploy more clean energy, one German state is planning on having enough renewables for exportation. Known as Germany’s windiest area, Schleswig-Holstein believes it could provide 100 percent renewable energy at some point this year, Renewables International reported. Producing as much renewable energy as it consumes in total electricity would go a long way toward Schleswig-Holstein meeting the 300-percent renewable goal the state’s Minister-President Torsten Albig announced at an energy conference two years ago.” [1].
