Current status and future perspectives of wind energy in Scandinavia: A comparative case study of the success factors and the barriers in Denmark, Norway and Sweden. INTRODUCTION The invention of the light bulb ushered a generation that embraced the harnessing of electricity. It eventually introduced the worlds’ dependence on fossil fuels or non-renewable energy like coal, petroleum and natural gas to produce power that stimulates industries, mobilizes transportation and invigorates modern living which uplifted the quality of human life. However the finite nature of non-renewable energy and the worlds’ increasing demand for it not only poses the problem of these fossil fuels being depleted but linked to its increasing price. Moreover, the extraction, utilization and transporting of fossil fuels bring in ecological impacts as landscapes ...
... eliminated administrative barriers and integrated the grid system most European countries are lagging behind their targets making the commission expect only a 19% share to be realistically reached than the 22.1% national target. (New Energy Focus, 2008).
The new directive known as Renewable Energy Directive was proposed on December 9, 2008 to the EU which was adopted and passed by the Parliament on 17 December 2008 replacing the existing measures adopted in the previous Directive 2001. It legally binds member states to increase consumption of energy generated by renewable energy sources at 20% by 2020. It also set a 10% target for transport to use renewable energy primarily biofuels taken from biomass by 2020.
