18 June 2019 - Member States sent back to work on their 2030 energy and climate plans

Reaction by the Coalition to the EC recommendations for the final NECPs

The European Commission assessment of draft National Energy and Climate Plans (NECPs) finds a shortfall of up to 6% percentage points to the EU’s 32.5% energy efficiency target by 2030. All but three countries are asked to up their ambition and all countries need to underpin their targets with robust policies. The Coalition for Energy Savings welcomes the assessment and believes that the recommendations are essential to close the gap and to use EU funding.

Brussels, 28 November 2018 – Today, the European Commission released its long-term climate strategy: A Clean Planet for All, which assesses pathways to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The strategy places energy savings as the bedrock of a rapid and attractive transition of the energy system but further work is required to fast track energy efficiency improvements across the economy. In the Commission’s analysis of pathways compatible with limiting global warming to 1.5°C, additional energy efficiency improvements play a central role, though only after 2030.
