    You are right to refer to the high cost of renewables and to suggest that vested interests (of suppliers of renewable technologies) may be behind this proposal. On the other hand is there not a legitimate case that renewables, produced within the EU, can help in both the short and long term to reduce dependence on imported energy, eg gas from Russia, that is subject to political risk?
