UK seeks to lower EU renewables target by double counting biofuels

December 9, 2013 |

In the UK, the government has proposed “double counting” biofuels as part of the renewable energy targets for 2020 that require 20% green energy. Up until now, the targets had been separate with 10% for transport and 20% for power, but the UK’s proposal would lower the 20% power target to 19.5%. The move in theory would reduce investment in renewables by $7.55 billion a year to 2020.
