39% and climbing - renewable resources in Portugal. Answered
In the UK, less than 5% of our electricity comes from "green", renewable resources.
In Portugal, they generate 39% of their power with renewables, and that is set to climb.
These red "snakes" - the Pelamis wave-power system - are built in the UK (but guess which government hasn't invested in them?), and Portugal is also investing heavily in wind, solar and hydro-electricity.
