Sustainable energy nations

Are there any nations where the energy production and use is fully sustainable – or at least CO2 neutral?

The EU Energy directive will push EU-nations in that direction: energy must be economically viable, contributing to welfare, ecologically sound.

Is this what we call a challenge?

Quote: “Energy policy for a competitive Europe – 20% renewable energy by 2020.
Europe’s citizens and companies need a secure supply of energy at affordable prices in order maintaining our standards of living. At the same time, the negative effects of energy use, particularly fossil fuels, on the environment must be reduced. That is why EU policy focuses on creating a competitive internal energy market offering quality service at low prices, on developing renewable energy sources, on reducing dependence on imported fuels, and on doing more with a lower consumption of energy.”
