EU Pledges to Double Renewables

The European Parliament and the Council of the EU, which serves EU member states, agreed that by 2030, the 27-country bloc would source 42.5% of its energy from renewable sources like wind and solar, with a potential increase to 45%.The EU wants 32% green energy by 2030. In 2021, green energy provided 22% of the bloc's energy. Sweden has 63% green energy, while Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, and Ireland use less than 13%. The EU must rapidly switch to green energy to meet its climate goals, including a legally binding goal to cut planet-heating gases by 55% by 2030 from 1990 levels.
Since Russia invaded Ukraine, renewable energy goals are important. The EU aims to stop using Russian fossil fuels by 2027, mostly using locally produced, low-carbon energy.

      "papier ist geduldig" and the fossil industry has an army of lobbyists and a lot of money to spend for political parties and influential politicians. Politicians are comparatively cheap.
