Wind Directions March 2011 - Keeping the Momentum

The target year of 2020 is coming up fast and 2030 is just around the corner. A new fuel power plant can expect to run for 35 years or more. What needs to happen next, what will our energy investment choices be, and what difference will they make?

New legislation needed now to meet EU 2050 climate commitment

The EU must put extra legislation in place in the lifetime of the current European Commission if it is to meet its commitment to cut domestic carbon emissions by 80-95% by 2050 warned the European Wind Energy Association.

100% renewables in the power sector “perfectly doable” by 2050, says Commissioner

"When we talk about the electricity sector, not the total energy consumption, but electricity, than I think by 2050 we’ll have 100% renewables in Europe. I think that is perfectly doable,” said EU Climate Action Commissioner Connie Hedegaard today at the EWEA 2011 Annual Event.
