Wallonia to have 30 % clean electricity by 2016

To Enerdata : ” The Government of Wallonia has set a target of 30% for green electricity production in 2016. To achieve this, the Walloon Government will ask energy suppliers to acquire an increased number of green certificates.”

” The current quota that providers must acquire is 16%. Until now, quotas were increased every year to stimulate the market, but they are now set at a horizon of 8 years to provide more certainty to investors. The target for 2020 is 38%.”

These are good news from and for Belgium. I just hope their neighbours from Flanders will join in this most interesting initiative. Could the whole European Union go for 30 percent by 2020 ?
