EU Will Meet Renewable Energy Targets for 2020
by Robert Kropp
An analysis by the European Wind Energy Association finds that just over 20% of the European
Union's energy consumption will be provided by renewable sources by 2020.
In 2009, the European Commission (EC) established national renewable energy action plans (NREAPs)
for its 27 member states, requiring them to meet a target of deriving at least 20% of their energy
consumption from renewable sources by 2020.
