EWEA Annual Report 2010
Powering the Energy Debate
2010 was a year of many highs and some lows. One of the highs was the fact that the Member States’ National Renewable Energy Action Plans showed the EU to be en route to slightly exceed the 20% renewable energy target.
Similarly, the European Commission’s important communications on a 2020 strategy and on infrastructure priorities were steps towards a Europe-wide power grid and a functioning single electricity market.
EWEA reached out to a wider audience in 2010 through its ‘Breath of Fresh Air’ campaign. It communicated the benefits of wind energy through a visible presence in Brussels and beyond, including the display of a turbine blade and a photo exhibition in the EU quarter, as well as the array of events organised worldwide for Global Wind Day.
