While the draft directive
, made available by Friends of the Earth Europe (FoEE), does not specify the precise percentage figures by which each member state will be required to increase its share of renewable energies, the following criteria are put forward:
By 2014, each member state's share of renewables must be at least the amount it used in 2005 plus 51% of the 2020 target;
by 2016, the figure must increase to 66% of the 2020 target; and;
by 2018, member states should have achieved 83% of their 2020 target (compared to the 2005 level as usual).
