European Union meets 2010 Renewable Energy Targets – On Track to exceed 2020 Targets
The European Wind Industry Association (EWEA) recently analyzed provisional EUROSTAT energy data and showed that the EU as a whole met its 2010 renewable energy targets. In a separate analysis EWEA predicted that the EU will surpass its 2020 targets by 20%.
There were of course differences among countries, with some exceeding their 2010 targets and some falling short, but overall the EU is still showing that a transition to renewable energy is both practical and beneficial.
Watch an interview with Falck Renewables CEO Willie Heller on how well the EU is doing and the cost reductions expected in solar and wind over the next 8 years.
