The power transmission operator said: "For the first time in the history of the Greek electricity system, demand was 100% covered by renewable energy sources".

Greece aims to more than double its green energy capacity as it hopes renewables will account for at least 70% of its energy mix by 2030.

According to electricity data from "Embers"Greece, an independent research center, last year produced 39.4% of its electricity from renewable sources, of which 19.8% from wind, 9.9% from hydro and 8, 9% from solar.

It produced 61% of its electricity from fossil fuels in 2021.
