Netherlands plans 6GW for 2020 push

NETHERLANDS: The Dutch government has published plans to build up to 6GW of wind power in order to meet its EU 2020 targets.

A new Dutch coalition government sworn in at the end of 2012 has committed to sourcing 16% of the country's final energy consumption from renewables by 2020, an increase on the country's 14% target under the EU renewables directive.

Meeting this target will require an additional 12GW of wind energy, up from the current 2.4GW, according to Dutch bank ING.
