More stringent energy efficiency target to be pushed across the EU, draft documents suggest
European Union regulators are considering pushing a more stringent energy efficiency agenda in the near future, with a significantly more ambitious target than before, recent draft documents viewed by a major news source have been able to reveal.
Under the draft proposals, which are yet to be agreed formally by the European Commission, the EU would commit to a binding goal to cut energy use by 30 per cent by 2030 compared with a business-as-usual scenario, the source said.
The Commission is expected to publish the draft law next month as part of a set of proposals for 2030 goals on emissions cuts, renewable energy and energy waste. The EU currently has a 2020 target to cut emissions 20 per cent compared to the projected use of energy, alongside a 2030 target to cut emissions across the bloc by 40 per cent compared to 1990 levels. This is set to be made up of a 43 per cent reduction in emissions from sectors covered by the EU emissions trading scheme (ETS) and a 30 per cent cut in emissions in non-ETS sectors such as buildings, agriculture, waste, and transport compared to 2005 levels.
