Renewable Energy Makes a Mighty Wind in Europe

Europe continues to lead the way toward a renewable energy future. The latest report from the EC’s Joint Research Centre finds that wind energy provided the Continent with eight percent of its electricity in 2014. Further, the report projects rapid growth; by 2020, wind energy will account for 12 percent of all Euro electricity. Also noted: top user Denmark recorded 40 percent of its electricity generation as sourced from wind power. Five other countries-Germany, Romania, Portugal, Ireland, and Spain-also generated significant wind energy shares. The wind energy numbers support progress toward the EU’s “20-20-20” climate and energy targets for 2020. Yes, Europe has an energy strategy, an overall policy that is missing in action in the U.S.
