While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    WIRING EUROPE’S WIND

    EU: an internal energy market by 2014?

    20 September 2012 (European Wind Energy Association)

    "...[Creating the Internal Energy Market in Europe]by the European Wind Energy Association argues that EU electricity market rules must reflect the energy generation mix of the future and help usher in a flexible power system with a large-scale uptake of wind power and other renewable energy sources…

    “The report comes as the Single European Act - creating a single market in goods, capital, people and services - turns 25…EU Heads of State have agreed that Europe should have an internal energy market by 2014, but the EU is not on track to meet that target. [This October the European Commission is set to publish a Communication…expected to contain an action plan to take Europe closer to a single energy market]…”

    “To this end, the report recommends…[1] Creating a level playing field for renewable energy sources by tackling structural market deficits such as…Removing regulated prices and excessive market concentration to enable small…and medium-sized power generators to enter the market…[and] Removing coal, gas and nuclear subsidies before they are removed from mature renewable technologies like onshore wind…

    “…[2] Creating functioning markets covering larger geographical regions within Europe so as to reduce the need to balance variable renewables like wind and solar…[3] Developing intraday and balancing markets at national(1) and cross-border levels…[4] Creating new markets for 'grid support services,' supporting the functioning of the grid to ensure a secure supply of electricity, instead of introducing market-distorting capacity payments.”
