It has been suggested that this section be split into a new article entitled Solar power in the European Union.
NPOV: All Wikipedia articles and other encyclopedic content must be written from a neutral point of view (NPOV), representing fairly and, as much as possible, without bias all significant views.
Solar power is a significant source of renewable energy. Therefore, You can write an additional article about it, if You like. However, it is against the neutral point of view to delete the subject or the tables from the article. Watti Renew (talk) 19:17, 19 November 2007 (UTC)
Can I ask for the source of the data used to make the "Share of renewable energies in gross electrical consumption in European Union countries in 2006" figure?
It gives >70% for Austria, which doesn't seem to match any data I can find on the topic. Austria does use a fair bit of direct solar thermal but that's got nothing to do with gross electrical consumption. Ordinary Person (talk) 04:11, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Comment - the article goes into quite a lot of detail on various EU treaties, which make it quite specifically about the EU. That said, redirecting the target to the current page doesn't make a lot of sense in that context; plus the map on the page includes EEA countries, so not sure what to do myself! — Amakuru (talk) 12:11, 1 October 2010 (UTC)

Jobs provided by the renewable energy industry in the EU in 2005-2009 by EREC here: . Is this info somewhere else in the Wiki? I recommend to include it in here as well. Do you agree? I can include the table if we do. Watti Renew (talk) 18:26, 14 January 2011 (UTC))
In this article it is stated: In 2006, 20% of the total electricity demand was already produced with renewable energy sources, and in January 2009 the total electricity demand produced with renewable energy sources reached 34.8%
But in the main article about renewable energy in Spain , it is stated that Renewable energy in Spain represented 12.5% of total energy generation in 2009. Spain has set the target of generating 20% of its energy needs from renewable energy sources by 2020.
