Text of a speech by European Energy Commissioner Miguel Arias Cañete at the EU Sustainable Energy Week.
The key point was the cost-competitive of the renewable energy compared to fossil fuels. With 12,5 GW of gross additional wind capacity installed in 2016, wind has overtaken coal as the second main source of energy in Europe (after gas) and the EU remains the second largest market for wind power (after China).
