The Hungarian government proposed a new energy strategy on Thursday that would increase the share of national renewable energy consumption from around four per cent today to up to 16 per cent by 2020. There is a "very slight chance" the share could reach 20 percent, an economy ministry official told Hungarian newswire MTI. The strategy is due to be approved by the Hungarian parliament in two weeks. Next year the European commission will propose minimum renewable energy consumption targets for EU states (EED 29/11/07).
