I am pretty sure they ran on renewables for thousands of years

And also, I'm pretty sure someone or a company was running an oil or gas heater or something ;P

300 years ago?

Oil was first discovered in 600 bc

Animal oils were used for hundreds, if not thousands, of years before that.

Rarely for heating though.

I would assume oil lamps were run on animal oils, but I guess those were more for lighting. I just kind of figured any use of oil in which it gets burned is fair game here.

oil lamps in asia were exclusively vegetable oils. not sure about europe.

The fact that a headline this blatantly false is getting upvotes should tell you all you need to know about redditors.

It’s not false. Just misleading. It says “For the first time in the history of the Greek electricity system, the demand was covered 100% from renewable energy sources,” its IPTO wrote. Which is technically true. Doesn’t mean it actually was. So definitely misleading. But not false

Does this include the 800+ petrol stations currently operating there or does Greece not depend on transportation networks to run the country?
