Directors General to discuss 2030 climate and energy framework

Coalition urges energy efficiency target

11 March 2013 - On 14 March, the Directors General for energy for the 27 EU Member States will gather to discuss the 2030 framework for climate and energy policies. The Coalition has sent in advance of this meeting a letter asking the Directors General to give priority to energy efficiency in their consideration of the climate and energy package.

The letter reaffirms the Coalition's position that the EU has failed to fully recognise the potential of energy efficiency as a driver for economic and sustainable growth, and that a 2030 energy efficiency target is necessary to reap the widespread long-term benefits.

The full letter can be accessed here.
