Spain helps out neighbour France in green power surge | Environment | The Guardian: "Spain has bolstered its credentials as a world leader in renewable energy by exporting electricity to France for the first time. Heavy rain and strong winds during 2010 meant that renewables - principally hydro, wind and solar power - met 35% of Spanish demand.

Wind power rose by 18.5% in 2010 and now meets 16% of demand. Luis Atienza, managing director of Spain's electricity grid, predicted that 'within three years wind power will overtake nuclear as an electricity source'. At its peak, on November 9, wind power met 43% of demand."
