ABSTRACT
The author comments on the failure of the European Union energy ministers to decide if the 20% target for renewable energy should be binding. The author stresses that energy ministers were also unable to agree to the complete "unbundling" of the energy sector. Instead they agreed to the principle of effective separation of supply and production activities from network operations (unbundling), based on independently run and adequately regulated network operation systems.
