EU Parliament proposes 35 % Renewables Target by 2030

Committee on Industry, Research and Energy proposes new EU renewable energy target of 35 % by 2030.

On November 28th 2017, the European Parliament’s Committee on Industry, Research and Energy proposed a new EU renewable energy target of 35 % by 2030, meaning that 35 % of all energy consumed in the EU should come from renewable energy sources. This is a considerable upwards revision from the current 27 % EU-wide target set by the European Commission. The main drivers of the recent proposal are higher ambitions for renewables in light of reaching climate goals and fighting climate change, while also being part of an ongoing reform of the EU renewable energy directive, which sets a 20 % renewable energy target by 2020.
