EU renewables package a faltering step forward

Brussels, Belgium — The EU is pushing ahead with measures to boost adoption of renewable energy and cut carbon emissions. Although they still don't go far enough, they are a step in the right direction.Of course, we have been telling politicians all along that only renewable technologies such as wind and solar power, alongside improving energy efficiency, are the only real solution to climate change. The penny dropped last year, when the EU announced that by 2020, a fifth of all energy would come from renewable sources.Governments were quick to show their green credentials by signing up but now we want to see action to make sure the target is achieved.
