On Tuesday, May 17, 2023, Spain produced enough

renewable energy to power its entire country for a 9-hour work day.  

This is a significant milestone for Spain, which has been a leader in the transition to renewable energy. 

The renewable energy that powered Spain on Tuesday came from a 

variety of sources, including wind, solar, and hydroelectric power.  

Wind power accounted for the majority of the renewable energy, 

followed by solar power and hydroelectric power. 

The production of renewable energy on Tuesday was made possible 

by a number of factors, including favorable weather conditions and 

the increasing installation of renewable energy capacity in Spain.
