EU near green energy deal despite biofuel deadlock

BRUSSELS, Nov 28 (Reuters) – The European Union has agreed rough deals on promoting renewable energy, but talks remain deadlocked over the controversial issue of biofuels, the European Parliament’s lead negotiator said.

“Nearly 100 pages of the report are done and three pages are not done, but those three pages are the most politically difficult,” Luxembourg Green group member Claude Turmes told Reuters late on Thursday.

A deal on improving the access for windfarms, solar and other renewable schemes to the European power grid is almost complete, Turmes added, following closed-door talks between parliament and EU nations to fine tune the laws.

The EU aims for a final, binding deal in the next three weeks.
