Description:The Commission issued a working paper on the "Campaign for Take-off" as part of the European strategy to reach the objective of 12% of primary energy supply coming from renewable energies in the EU in 2010. The campaign will focus on 7 sectors with indicative targets as follows : - 1,000,000 PV systems - 15 million m2 solar collectors - 10,000 MW of wind turbine generators - 10,000 MWth of combined heat and power biomass installations - 1,000,000 dwellings heated by biomass - 1,000 MW of biogas installations - 5 million tonnes of liquid biofuels The campaign for Take-off will be supported through the Alterner-II programme. It is estimated that 75 to 80% of the capital required to achieve the goals put forth in the paper would have to come from private sources, leaving an estimated 7 billion euros to be publicly funded.
