The article reports that the Renewable Energy Association (REA) has called on the government to step up to the plate for the full 20 percent and meet new European Union commitments to generate one-fifth of all energy, not just electricity, from renewables by 2020. In May 2007 the REA called for the Energy White Paper to be delayed so it could reflect the new energy commitments.
