Today the European Union produces a sixth of its electricity using renewable energy sources like wind, solar and hydro power.

This film, shot in Germany, Denmark and Spain looks at a number of projects supported by the EU's Intelligent Energy Europe Programme, which are designed to help the Union meet this ambitious target.
