Renewable Industry associations react to the 32% 2030 target


  • PUBLISHED: June 14, 2018

On 14 June, the European Council and European Parliament came to an agreement on the target for renewable energy deployment by 2030 in the EU: 32% of final energy.

The renewable energy industry associations give a cautious approval to the outcomes of the negotiations between the European Union co-legislators on the Renewable Energy Directive, setting the objective for renewable energy deployment in the upcoming decade. The 32% renewable energy target to 2030 is a welcome improvement compared to what had been proposed back in November 2016, which was based on outdated assumptions set in 2014. Yet, it does not quite set the European Union on a pathway consistent with the requirements of the climate mitigation objectives set in the Paris Agreement.
