EU objectives for this year set out in a 1997 white paper have consistently been overhauled, with 16 GW of PV over target by five times, 1 GW of geothermal heat by three times, and 75 GW of wind by 80%, says EREC.

We are convinced that Europe will not only meet the binding target for 2020 of at least 20%, but clearly surpass it -- Christine Lins, secretary-general, EREC
