According to the Article 4(3) of Directive 2009/28/EC on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable energy sources the EU Member States submitted their forecast documents. The analysis of the forecast documents resulted that the EU will exceed the 20 % renewable energy consumption target with 0;3 % in 2020. The paper gives an overview about the technical feasibility of the integration of the renewable energy sources in the energy systems in the EU and analyze the critical factors and possible solutions.
