The Germans are quite often leading the way in technological advancements in the world, but they are doing exceptionally well in the Green energy sector. Whether it be wind energy or solar energy they just seem to be ahead of the rest!

The sate of Schleswig-Holstein, in Germany is aiming to hit 100% renewable energy by the end of this year and will continue to generate 300%, 3 times what they need to sell to other parts of the country.
