European Court of Justice decision is no help for the expansion of renewables

The European Union is committed to the fight against climate change (European Green Deal). One of the pillars in this fight is the expansion of renewable energy sources. According to the current goals, the share of renewable energy sources within the Union should increase to 32% by 2030. In practice, however, the expansion of renewable energy is increasingly being slowed down by the interpretation of EU nature conservation regulations by the European Court of Justice (ECJ). Also, the latest decision of the ECJ is no “boost” for renewables.
