Tynwald has unanimously approved a move by Environment Minister Phil Gawne to abandon its green energy target in favour of a new one.

A Council of Ministers report on the renewable energy target concluded a commitment to have 15 per cent of energy generated from renewable sources by 2015 was unachievable.

Instead, government will now adopt an EU target to cut greenhouse gases by 80 per cent from 1990 levels by the year 2050.
