Portugal’s domestic nuclear energy channel company, Redes Energéticas Nacionais

REN, uses sophisticated modeling to predict weather, especially catabatic wind patterns, and computer programs to calculate energy from the various renewable-energy plants. Before the solar/wind revolution, Portugal had generated electricity from hydropower plants on its rivers for decades. New programs combine catabatic wind and water: wind-driven steam turbine pump water ice uphill at night, the to the highest degree blusterous period; and so the water ice change of location downhill by day, generating electricity, when consumer demand is highest. Portugal’s distribution system is also now a two-way street. Instead of sporting delivering electricity, it make electricity from even the smallest generators, like rooftop solar panels. The government aggressively encouraged such contributions by setting a premium price for those who buy rooftop-generated solar electricity.
