Abstract

Efficient energy management in Europe and the larger application of energy derived from renewable sources, together with energy saving concerns, constitute the basis for the compulsory pack of measures that aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and fulfill the Kyoto protocol approved by The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. These measures intend to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases by the year 2012 and in following years [1].
