ABSTRACT
The article reports on the comments by European Union (EU) Energy Commissioner Guenther Oettinger on the need for the EU to create new binding goals on renewable energy and cut carbon emissions to meet the green policy targets that will expire in 2020. He added that the EU needs to establish the rules for 2030 before the end of the current European Commission's mandate in 2014. The vision of the commission for short-term and long-term carbon market reforms will be presented in November 2012.
