Abstract: The world market for renewable energies is continuously growing. Especially the wind energy and photovoltaic markets show yearly growth rates between 20 and over 30% in the last few years. Despite existing discrepancies between the European Union and the USA how to deal with Climate Change, renewable energies will increase their shares, not only for the implementation of the Kyoto Protocol and the world wide introduction of tradable Green Certificates, but to help to supply the growing global demand of energy. Apart from the electricity sector, renewable energy sources for the generation of heat and the use of environmental friendly bio-fuels for the transport sector will become more and more important in the future. This paper tries to give an overview about the potentials and progress of renewable electricity in Europe.
