Re: And the UK ?
Just to add to this, according to BEIS (Dept of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy?) the ANNUAL load factors for offshore wind turbines is about 45% of rated capacity and on shore 25%. This, of course is, the energy output for a full year and varies on a day-to-day basis as anywhere between 0% and 100% of demand. Many periods of high air pressure / low wind speeds occur during winter and summer seasons, meaning demand for heating or fans / air con for cooling cannot be met by wind generated resources because there isn't any. Furthermore, the first wind generation turbines are reaching the end of life and require decommissioning - and it is not easy to recycle composite fibre reinforced blades.
Much of the EU is devoid of suitable offshore areas for turbines - and on shore are far less efficient. Rather than getting worked up about the design of plugs, it is worth asking whether the EU has plans for an EU Grid to distribute this "free low carbon energy" and include hydro schemes from Scandinavian sources.
Finally, a legal point. I'm not sure if this European Parliament declaration is in response to an EU Commission proposal. If it isn't, it has no binding status. The EU can only legislate on the basis of a proposal from the Commission, and the Parliament has no power to tell the Commission to make any specific proposal. So if the Commission doesn't want to action something, it doesn't happen. If it is minded to "do something", its proposals can be radically different to what the Parliament wanted. It's called EU law making.
