Energy is not electricity. A country's total energy counts the gas for its cars and planes, its fuel for heating, its coal for steelmaking. All this is saying is that their power grid was 100% renewable

This would make sense if at most 20% of the country's energy consumption is in the form of electricity.

Is it? I actually don't know.

Edit: crap. It is. Using my own source. In 2021, the country consumed 293 TWh of energy, of which, 55.78 TWh was electricity which comes out to 19.0% of total energy being in the form of electricity.

I stand corrected.
