The 2018 adoption of the Clean Energy for All European Package
introduced an uptaded European Climate and energy framework encompassing greenhouse gas emissions reduction, renewable energy deployment and energy efficiency targets to 2030 along with accompanying implementing measures. The different pieces of the legislative bundle were adopted by the European Union co-legislators, include the recast Renewable Energy Directive, the review of the Energy Efficiency Directive and on the Governance Regulation.
In 2020, the European Commission announced a 'Fit for 55%' package with the aim to increase significantly the ambition of the framework adopted in 2018 in order to align the policies implemented in Europe with the requirements of a carbon neutral economy in 2050. This means that most European legislative texts adopted in 2018 are opened for revision again.
The Fit for 55% package notably includes a revision of the Renewable Energy Directive, a recast of the Energy Efficiency Directive, the ETS framework (including the creation of a Climate Social Fund), the Energy Taxation Directive...
A second series of legislative proposal include the revision of the Energy Performance Energy Directive and was presented in December 2021 to align the European building legislation with the objective of decarbonisation of the building stock by 2050.
