European Union Shifts to Renewables

The winds of change are blowing across the European Union. Renewable energy accounted for over 60% of the new energy generation capacity in 2009. Wind accounted for 39% and solar accounted for 16% of the new energy generation capacity. 

Perhaps most encouraging, the EU decommissioned more coal and nuclear plant capacity than they brought on line. 

Wow. That makes for a very dynamic shift toward renewable energy.
