Member States and European Parliament to show more ambition on renewable energy in the lightof the successful conclusion to COP21 in Paris.Oliver Schaefer, President of SolarPower Europe, stated 'Our Board has recognized that moreambition is needed in Europe to reach the objective of limiting global warming to just 1,5Cdegrees, which the European Union signed up to in Paris. We have therefore unanimously agreedto call for a renewable energy target of 35% to be achieved by 2030. The European Union mustreview the targets suggested in 2014 in line with global developments, it would be foolish topretend that nothing has changed since COP21.'The European Union is due to set new renewable energy targets for the period after 2020 throughthe course of the coming two years. Alexandre Roesch, Policy Director of SolarPower Europe added'We now have a unique opportunity to go beyond 'business as usual' and sustain the claim thatEurope is the world number one in renewables. As a first step we need a coherent policy packagein December this year with a clear 35% target and an appropriate market design to support theenergy transition.'
