In Asia-Pacific, Australia reduced its Renewable Energy Target (RET) from 41 Terawatt hours (TWh) to 33 TWh by 2020, and has announced its second large-scale wind energy auction, due towards the end of 2015. It is also restricting Clean Energy Finance Corporation’s (CEFC) investment in the wind and solar sector. China has announced plans to reduce its carbon emissions and augment wind and solar capacity by 2030. In Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, Feed-in Tariffs (FiT) were made available for small wind turbines in Denmark and Poland, and in Turkey, the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) launched a waste minimization program. In Wales, Plaid Cymru has set a goal of 100% of the country’s electricity coming from renewable sources by 2035, while in the UK as a whole, the government ended the Climate Change Levy (CCL) exemption for renewable source electricity and modified renewable energy subsidies to protect consumers from rising energy bills.
