The first steps

For the first time Europe is to get a government accredited strategy for development of renewable sources of energy. It is long overdue and, as Greenpeace's "carbonosaurus" drew attention to, it is likely to be a tame affair: no targets for renewables and no Directive on pro-renewables legislation. But it is a step in the right direction. Nowhere is this better confirmed than by the squealing of big industry, which has branded even the draft strategy as overly ambitious and inflexible, and by Europe's electric utilities, who are calling it economically unrealistic. If they are worried, the politicians are making the right moves.
