Hot air as a catalyst
It is true that ministers did not agree to commit Europe to a 12% target aimed at doubling the use of renewables. It should be noted, however, that Europe's energy ministers, barring none, did agree on where they were headed with renewables and why they need to get there. Such broad based political will can be as important for the stability of the fragile wind market as any amount of regulation. That ministers agree on where we should go and why is an excellent start. The next step is the "how" and the "when."
