Brussels, 14 March 2006 - Friends of the Earth Europe activists today protested in front of the EU Council building, against the energy policy of the European Union by setting up a 10m high inflatable dinosaur depicting dirty energy technologies as well as an inflatable nuclear power station. A banner read: "Dirty Fossil, Dangerous Nukes? The Future Is Renewable!". Activists distributed to officials entering the Council building edible mini power stations made from pastry. 
Brussels, 23 April 2004 : Three leading environmental groups are demanding the European Commission put forward a new target for boosting the share of renewable energy used in Europe to 25% by the year 2020.
The move follows the leaking of a draft Communication that reviews Europe's renewables policies, and which indicates that the Directorate General for Energy has so far refrained from proposing any new target.
