The Commission has today published its assessment of Member States’ draft plans to implement the EU’s Energy Union objectives, and in particular the agreed EU 2030 energy and climate targets.
With plans currently falling short both in terms of renewables and energy efficiency contributions, reaching the EU’s overall climate and energy goals will require a collective step up of ambition, according to the assessment. National authorities now have 6 months to raise their national level of ambition, as the deadline for submitting the final plans is set for 31 December 2019.
