The German state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern generates 120% of its electricity from renewable sources, according to a new publication.
“We cover more than 120 percent of our electricity needs from renewable energies and thus are far ahead of all federal states. Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania has become in 2013 the final exporter of green electricity. The main reason for this is the development of wind turbines on land and in photovoltaics,” explained Rudolf Borchert, energy spokesman for the SPD parliamentary group (the Social Democratic Party). This party is for economic growth that is environmentally sustainable. Borchert is also Chairman of the Committee on Energy, Infrastructure and Regional Development.
