Inside The European Union’s Aggressive 20-20-20 Renewable Energy Goals

Can Europe's fragmented renewable energy market get to 30% clean energy by 2020?
Summary:

The European Union (E.U.) has adopted aggressive climate and energy goals—the “20-20-20” targets that aim to derive 20% of EU energy consumption from renewable resources by 2020. But the EU is struggling with developing an effective voluntary market for renewable energy to complement these government efforts, and without this market, may not make its goal.
