Not supporting renewable energy targets

InfluenceMap Comment:

Evidence suggests not supporting ambitous renewable energy targets in Europe; stressing the need to maintain 'cost-effective' energy alternatives (US Chamber Press Release, 'A Transatlantic Approach to Europe's Energy Challenges', May 2016)

Extract from Source:

The EU has made a commitment to achieve a 27% improvement in energy efficiency and in renewable energy consumption by 2030. If achieved, both measures will contribute to reducing imports and carbon emissions. In both cases, management of energy systems and provision for back up sources should be available to ensure a reliable energy supply. There is a balance to be struck on the pace and method of implementation, and flexibility to utilize cost-effective energy supply alternatives should be maintained.
