restricting EU environmental action to initiatives that require MS to proscribe the use of solar energy generation – which uses rare earth minerals on environmental grounds.
A directive is passed using the OLP on Feb 14 2014
MS must implement the Direct by July 2015
The UK has not yet implemented the directive

They claim there are no real environmental concerns stemming for the use of tiny amounts of rare earth minerals used in their technology.
