Introduction and the EU Target

            The UK Climate Change Act was set in 2008. According to the target set by the Climate Change Act, the green house reductions are to come down by 26% compared to the 1990 levels. The Climate Change Committee predicts that 30% of the overall electricity from UK would come from wind by 2020. Other than this, in the renewable energy targets for the EU, the 15% overall demand for electricity has to be met from renewable sources. This will also include heating and transport and hence overall renewable electricity generation of around has to be increased by 30% by 2020 to meet the energy demands. The paper would shed light on how the EU is going to achieve its goal, what obstacles it encounters, and the possibilities for reaching its target.
