Renewables targets to be set at 20%

The 2001 directive on renewable energies aims to increase the share of renewable energy sources from 6% to 12% of the EU’s total energy consumption by 2010. Three years after its adoption, in May 2004, the Commission published a first progress report, showing that member states are not on track to meet their national targets set out in the directive.

In the meantime, many stakeholders, including environmentalists, the renewables lobby as well as the European Parliament, have called on the Commission to set a more ambitious, mandatory target of 20 or 25% for 2020.
