European Union moves to strengthen renewable-energy goals

01/29/2018

European lawmakers have backed measures that would substantially raise the European Union’s clean-energy ambitions. By 2030, more than one-third of energy consumed in the EU should be from renewable sources such as wind and solar power, the European Parliament says — up from the existing target of just over one-quarter. But the decision is not yet legally binding: The Parliament will now need to negotiate the plan with national governments, which could attempt to lower the targets.
