The article reports that European Union green investment in renewable energy will exceed €70 billion by 2011, excluding large-scale hydroelectricity, according to Emerging Energy Research. Investment was driven by high fuel prices and emissions restrictions under the Kyoto Protocol. Security of supply was also a big concern. Most investment to date has been in wind power and this is likely to continue with booming wind energy industries in Great Britain, France, Portugal and Italy.
