The European Renewable Energy Yearbook

This volume brings together some of Europe's key government officials, industry leaders and lawyers, who have shaped public and industrial opinion and whose day-to-day business now involves ensuring that the Renewable Energy Directive (Directive 2009/28/EC) is implemented effectively. They are examining the main issues facing the EU's fast growing and changing renewable markets, outlining the main challenges for the future and giving possible answers and how some of the key practical issues, raised by the directive could, should and will be resolved, according to the opinion of the authors.
