WindEurope calls on the European Parliament and EU Member states to build greater ambition on renewables toward 2030. Giles Dickson, CEO of WindEurope, said: “We welcome the Commission’s package on renewables and market design. But there is still a lot of work to do in the Parliament and the Council to ensure renewables investors stick with Europe after 2020. If Europe is going to deliver on its goal to be number one in renewables, the Commission’s proposals have to be further developed. Crucially Member States have to produce meaningful national plans to map out their energy transition. And that means all Member States. Today only 7 out of 28 have clear plans and policies in place for renewables beyond 2020.”

Biofuels From Cultivated Biomass: A Sustainable Solution For Renewable Mobility

The Paris agreement on climate change has added impetus to the decarbonisation of transport as one of the most effective ways for realising the climate protection targets. Next to higher engine efficiencies and the simultaneous hybridization of engine technologies. Biofuels will have to play an important role in terms of a bridging function because they are already available and with biofuels from cultivated biomass, it is possible to make an immediate and effective contribution to the lowering of emissions in existing vehicle fleets.

Car Parks Of The Future? New European Airport Uses Trina Solar PV Modules

The international Airport Weeze in North Rhine-Westphalia is one of the newest European airports, welcoming 1.8m passengers a year. The airport operators have now opened car park P2 for customers and equipped it with a PV carport system. This offers a dual advantage. First, the renewable energy generated by the system can be used as an additional revenue source, or for self-consumption; whilst reducing its carbon footprint. Second, the system also serves as a protective layer shielding passenger vehicles.
