Commission Strikes Back with EUTube

In case you haven’t noted, Commissioners are apparently getting lobbied left, right and centre from a plethora of Member States who have all suddenly realised that committing to a renewables target of 20% by 2020 actually means you have to do something to achieve it.


The Commission’s comms department has struck back with a EUTube video reminding us all of why the targets Member States want to back away from are apparently still a good idea; mood music for the long-awaited and debated renewables proposal due out on 23rd January. Whether the Commission sticks to its guns in its allocation of the renewables obligation between recalcitrant Member States is of course a different matter, which is of course potentially subject to the nationality of each individual Commissioner.
