Climate change, increasing oil and fossil fuel dependence and rising energy prices: all these factors are rendering Europe increasingly vulnerable. The key to a sustainable future must involve renewable energies. As part of its Energy Policy for Europe, on 10 January 2007, the European Commission put forward a proposal for a long-term Renewable Energy Roadmap. The proposal includes an overall binding 20% renewable energy target and a binding minimum target of 10% for transport biofuels for the EU by 2020, and a pathway to bring renewable energies in the fields of electricity, heating and cooling and transport to the economic and political mainstream.
