A discussion event will take place in the Sir Duncan Rice Library this month entitled EU Renewable Energy Post 2020 – Can We Promote Renewable Energy In Europe Without Binding Targets?
Speakers include Olivia Woolley (School of Law University of Aberdeen) and Morag McCorkindale (Aberdeen Renewable Energy Group (AREG))
Here’s an excerpt from the description on the Facebook event page:
Currently, under the 2009 Renewable Energy Directive, EU Member States have binding targets to meet for renewable energy development. These targets expire in 2020, and any further policy framework is non-binding as of now. The past experience with non-binding renewable energy targets (2001 Renewable Electricity Directive) has demonstrated limited effectiveness. However, the binding targets form renewables may hamper other low-carbon energy developments, such as nuclear energy or CCS (carbon capture and storage).
The event will be held on Wednesday 25th October in the Sir Duncan Rice Library at the University of Aberdeen from 5pm – 7pm.
The event is free but booking is advised to avoid disappointment.
