A growing gap is emerging between supply and demand for electricity produced from renewable energy sources in the UK with production expected to fall short in 2007, according to a survey by Datamonitor. The EU currently has a target to meet 12% of its overall energy needs from renewables with a specific target of 21% for electricity to be met by 2010. Earlier this month, EU leaders agreed to push for an even more ambitious goal, deciding to raise the overall objective to 20% by 2020. However, the specific target on renewable power was dropped in the agreement to allow EU countries more flexibility to achieve the overall objective.
