WindEurope Calls On EU To Increase Ambition On Renewables

WindEurope calls on the European Parliament and EU Member states to build greater ambition on renewables toward 2030. Giles Dickson, CEO of WindEurope, said: “We welcome the Commission’s package on renewables and market design. But there is still a lot of work to do in the Parliament and the Council to ensure renewables investors stick with Europe after 2020. If Europe is going to deliver on its goal to be number one in renewables, the Commission’s proposals have to be further developed. Crucially Member States have to produce meaningful national plans to map out their energy transition. And that means all Member States. Today only 7 out of 28 have clear plans and policies in place for renewables beyond 2020.”
