Germany to miss 2020-renewables target – BEE


Germany will likely miss the 2020 EU goal to increase the renewables share of gross final energy consumption to 18 percent (currently 14.6 percent), according to projections by  the German Renewable Energy Federation (BEE). “While 23 EU member states will reach their renewables development targets, Germany is among the few countries that would miss the goal if the government doesn’t react quickly,” said BEE’s acting managing director Harald Uphoff in a press release.
