Targeting 27 per cent renewables by 2020

Germany's federal environment minister Sigmar Gabriel wants to increase the country's renewables target from 20% to at least 27% of electricity use by 2020, rising further to at least 45% for 2030. Germany's 12.5% by 2010 target will be met this year, he notes, while by 2010 renewables will probably meet 15% of electricity demand. The minimum requirement of 20% by 2020 set by the renewable energy law "will be overstepped by a long chalk," says Gabriel.
