Comment from Co-operative Energy following the EU's 2030 climate and energy goals announcement

Posted on 22 January 2014

Ramsay Dunning, Co-operative Energy's group general manager said: "There is much to applaud in the EU's announcement today especially the commitment to reduce greenhouse gases across Europe by 40%.  However, we think more is needed on renewable energy. The EU's own impact assessment shows that leadership on renewable energy brings improved energy security, hundreds of thousands of extra jobs and lower energy prices in the long run. Last year, more than half of Co-operative Energy's electricity supply was derived from renewables, so we know it's possible for Europe to go further still."
