What are the Renewable Energy Directive (RED) and Renewable Energy Strategy (RES)?

The RED is the directive adopted by the European Union in 2009 to increase the proportion of renewable energy produced in Europe.

Each country has its target for renewable energy in 2020 averaging 20% across the whole EU.

The UK has signed up to this directive with a national target of 15% of all the UK's energy to come from renewables by 2020. The way this will be achieved is set out in the National Renewable Energy Action Plan (NREAP) and the Renewable Energy Roadmap.
