ABSTRACT
The author comments on the renewable energy sources minimum targets proposed by the European Commission. The proposed integrated energy and climate change package sets out targets for 2010 including a 20% cut in greenhouse gas emissions, a 20% share of renewables in energy production and a 20% saving in primary energy consumption. The European Union push for biofuels is mirrored in the U.S. Such huge changes in biofuels usage will not be easy.
