European energy companies accuse EU of slacking in the fight against climate change

FT 5th Nov 2017, Some of Europe’s largest energy companies have accused the EU of lacking
ambition in the fight against climate change and urged more aggressive
targets for growth in renewable power. The declaration, by companies
including Iberdrola of Spain, Enel of Italy and SSE of the UK, came as
negotiators gathered in Bonn for the latest round of international talks on
tackling global warming. A proposed target for renewables to meet 27 per
cent of EU energy consumption by 2030, up from 16.7 per cent in 2015,
“lacks ambition and would slow down the current rate of renewables
deployment” in Europe, the companies said.
