ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the research and development works carried out by the European Union (EU), in the renewable energy sector. The global warming threat, continued unpredictability of oil prices and fears over security of supply lead to extensive research into solar, wind, tidal and wave power within the EU. In hot countries like Spain concentrated solar power has become a significant area of EU research. European Commission opines that transport's dependence on fossil fuels can be reduced by increasing the share of biomass-derived fuels.
