Cabo Verde (formerly Cape Verde) 100% renewable including desalination

One novel part in the puzzle may be the nation’s desalination systems, which provide drinking water for much of the population. They currently use large amounts of electricity, but by scheduling their use to times when wind turbines are operating and when electricity demand is low will help maximise their efficiency. And pumping this water up into reservoirs during these minimal usage periods will also enable hydroelectric power to be harnessed at times when more electricity is in demand.
