Green Energy September

For 8 days in September, sustainable electricity generation on the islands of Suðuroy reached 100% and the motors of the thermal power plant were temporarily switched off. For 10 days of September, renewable penetration was above 80%.

In September, renewables made up 53% of total electricity generation. The bulk coming from hydro power and wind power, respectively. Solar generation made up less than 1%.

Suðuroy is home to the Porkeri project, being commissioned, which includes the Porkeri wind farm as well as a battery energy storage solution that mathches the wind farm in power capacity and a synchronous condenser, which ensures grid stability even with high penetration of renewable energy sources.
