European Union countries will attempt to approve a new law on more ambitious renewable energy targets next week. The law is designed to drive a rapid expansion of renewable energy sources including wind and solar power. Such a vote was delayed late last month after a group of pro-nuclear European Union members – including France, Bulgaria, Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic – opposed the deal on the grounds that the legislation failed to give sufficient attention to nuclear energy. France’s Ministry of Energy has so far declined to comment. In response, Germany, Luxembourg, Denmark and Ireland have urged the EU to resolve the disagreement. The proposed law has been structured to offer compromises, including lower renewable fuel targets for countries that have already used nuclear power to cut their use of fossil fuels.
