EU Renewable Energy Policy Post 2020: can we promote renewable energy in Europe without the binding targets?" A discussion. Renewables event

Wednesday 25 October | Sir Duncan Rice Library, University of Aberdeen | 5.00 - 7.00pm

Currently, under the 2009 Renewable Energy Directive, EU Member States have binding targets to meet for renewable energy development. These targets expire in 2020, and any further policy framework is non-binding as of now. The past experience with non-binding renewable energy targets (2001 Renewable Electricity Directive) has demonstrated limited effectiveness. However, the binding targets form renewables may hamper other low-carbon energy developments, such as nuclear energy or CCS (carbon capture and storage).

Join Europe Direct Aberdeen and our speakers Dr Olivia Woolley (School of Law, University of Aberdeen) and Morag McCorkindale from Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG) to discuss the future of energy and climate policies of the EU post 2020.
