On 2 December 2016, the European Commission released a study which showed that green bonds had increased outstandingly, since they were first issued in 2007.
The study on the potential and functioning of green bond markets also identified key bottlenecks and measures to overcome them in order to achieve their huge potential. The study was published two days after the Commission's "Clean Energy for All Europeans" package which concluded that an extra EUR 177 billion was required annually from 2021 onwards to reach the 2030 climate and energy goals.
