eceee pages on the 2030 energy policy framework
The European Commission’s proposal for a policy framework for climate and energy in the period from 2020 to 2030 was presented 22 January 2014. The EC only proposed an overall target for green-house gases and an EU-wide renewables target, but stopped short of proposing a target for energy efficiency.
The Commission further came out with an impact assessment in July 2014 to assess whether the 2020 target would be met and to discuss how energy efficiency could help address energy security. The Commission proposed a 2030 target of 30% energy savings, which eventually was set as a 27% target by the European Council on 23–34 October 2014.
