This just in from ThinkProgress:

Yes, Germany, with it’s average 30 days of sunshine a year, just hit 74.9% of it’s energy needs from renewables.

There’s a chart in the article, which shows that photovoltaics produces a fairly small percentage of the total, (wind and biomass do the heavy lifting) but that should give you an idea of what we could do here. Just for comparison purposes, I’m including a map to document just how freaking far north Germany is.
