20% renewable energy by 2020

Length: 3'55''

Date of production: January 2008

Subject: The European Union has set itself the goal of raising the share of renewable energy sources in the final overall energy consumption of the Union from 8.5% in 2005 to 20% in 2020. This is an ambitious objective, but it is also a necessary contribution to the global fight against climate change and towards better control over our energy dependence. Governments have a crucial role to play through their good example and their support. But each individual can also help to achieve this objective. The various uses for renewable energy sources are examined: electricity for wind and hydraulic energies; electricity or heat for geothermal and solar energies; multiple applications: electricity, heat, and biofuel for biomass, the "Sleeping Giant". The European Union is a world leader in the use and deployment of technologies that exploit renewable energy sources, and it intends to remain so.
