EWEA's report shows that in 2010, wind energy avoided as much as 28% of the EU’s Kyoto emissions reduction target, and will avoid as much as 31% of the EU-wide objective by 2020.


EWEA climate policy recommendations for the EU to 2020 include moving to a 30% domestic reduction target, tightening the emissions trading system to avoid oversupply and a low CO2 price and committing 100% of ETS auctioning revenue to finance climate mitigation.
