Energy ministers draw blank on biofuels deal

12.12.13 @ 17:22


EU energy ministers failed to a reach agreement on biofuels following a meeting on Thursday. Ministers rejected a compromise that would have established a 7% threshold for conventional biofuels, and which would have allowed governments to set up a national biofuel sub-target within the 10% target for renewables in general.
