Renewables Increase by 30% in Europe


March 21, 2014

The alternative energy is misnomer as it is only “energy”. The ability to produce robust energy solutions is the backbone to a strong infrastructure.  The focus on an energy mix of fossil fuel and clean is broadening the scope of what is energy for capacity.   The goal for “30% renewables target for 2030 would cut Europe’s reliance on gas imports by almost three times- ewea” is considering wind within the energy mix.

To promote a more balanced energy supply “business leaders from over 150 companies and organisations have signed a statement calling for a stronger commitment from policymakers to Europe’s 2030 climate and energy objectives including a legally binding target for renewable energy.  In a letter to EU foreign ministers, The European Wind Energy Association’s chief executive Thomas Becker said that a renewable energy target of “at least 30%” would allow Europe to significantly scale back its fossil fuel imports, including from Russia.

“Whereas the Commission’s proposal would reduce gas imports by only 9%, a more ambitious, yet achievable target would cut the same imports by 26%, almost three times as much. Europe’s wind industry also recognises the importance of a target that is binding at national level. This would spur green growth, create more jobs and attract investment while maintaining Europe’s position as a global leader in renewable energy. A 30% renewables target can foster 568,000 more jobs in Europe by 2030 than a 27% target,” reports Balkans News.

The goal of 30% renewable energy is a goal perceived as lofty, moderate or low.  The ability to reduce fossil fuels by any significant amount has to be buttressed by a viable mix of energy solutions.  Nations will have to determine what is the role of energy. The answer is logical but complex as today not all energy is created equal.

If we move to a technological mind where the promotion of data is made equal can that step be taken in the commodification of energy. The role of energy is a solution for the masses but as a business it is none the less a powerful denominator in economics.  The promotion of Europe’s renewable goals in success is a roadmap for other nations to benchmark and measure.
