Another European Minister calls for single European approach to renewables
At a February 1st energy seminar in Berlin, Henk Kamp, Minister of Economic Affairs for the Netherlands requested that Europe work together to stimulate renewable energy production.
The fear of the minister was that companies do not invest where the sun is the brightest or wind blows the hardest but rather in countries where the subsidies are the highest. He said, “If all countries act on their own, the internal market will fragment and consumers will end up paying more.”
The article goes on to say that if the member states were to work together there would be a savings of up to 10 billion euros per year.
