EU expects to meet renewable target

The EU will meet its 20-per-cent renewable energy target for 2020, or slightly exceed it, according to an analysis by the European Wind Energy Association (EWEA).

The analysis shows that 13 member states predict they will meet their target, while eight forecast they will exceed their target. Only six forecast they will not manage to reach their target through domestic action alone. None of them expect to be more than one percentage point below their target.

Top achievers are Spain, Germany, Estonia, Greece, Ireland, Poland, Slovakia and Sweden, which all expect to exceed their targets.
