Five of its member countries have called on the European Union to undertake a substantial goal to up the solar energy capacity across the bloc in an effort to reduce its reliance on Russian oil and gas.

As per Bloomberg News, Spain, Lithuania, Austria, Luxembourg, and Belgium have signed a joint letter to the EU’s Climate Chief Frans Timmermans and Energy Commissioner Kadri Simson, proposing the installation of at least 1,000 gigawatts of photovoltaics in the zone by 2030. The letter also contended that the EU is capable of assembling at least 70 million solar rooftops by the end of the decade.

The letter, which was viewed by Bloomberg News, stated, “Solar rooftops should be the norm for newly built houses and for houses going through a major renovation.” It further added, “Every photovoltaic panel reduces immediately and directly our energy dependence from Russia.”

This comes just as the European Union prepares to present its strategy to curb its dependence on Russian oil and gas imports, reported Bloomberg News.
