Calls for global legislation to achieve global energy targets  

A new report has found wind energy could provide up to a third of the world’s electricity by the year 2030, if governments around the globe legislate to support renewable energy.

The report was prepared for the Global Wind Energy Council and Greenpeace.

The director of Greenpeace International’s Renewable Energy Campaign, Sven Teske, says Australian states like South Australia and Victoria have already taken positive steps towards mandating renewable energy targets.

He says the state and federal governments need to do more by stopping subsidies for fossil fuels.

“It doesn’t make sense to talk about targets when there is no mechanism in place to achieve those targets,” he said.

“So a very important first step is an ambitious target and a second one is to put measurements in place and programs to achieve those targets, that’s very crucial.”
