Brussels, 31 January 2020 – At a meeting with Commissioner Kadri Simson the Coalition for Energy Savings called for stronger implementation, stronger targets and stronger measures in order to deliver the European Green Deal ambition.
First reaction to EC Communication on a European Green Deal
The European Green Deal is a commitment to a deep transformation of the EU economy to a new growth strategy putting people first. While it sets out strong ambition and announces policy measures throughout all sectors, it remains unclear on the intentions to raise the energy efficiency target in order to tap the cost-effective potentials.
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, 14 May 2019 – The Coalition for Energy Savings adopted its 2050 Energy Efficiency Vision. It shows that delivering the full energy savings potential will make the energy transition fast, fair and attractive and allow the EU to reach net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, at the latest.
Brussels, 2 April 2019 – As the European Commission will release its State of the Energy Union tomorrow, a new analysis by the Coalition for Energy Savings shows that more is needed to put the EU on track to reach its 2030 energy efficiency target and tap the associated economic, social and environmental benefits.
The Coalition for Energy Savings is an open platform uniting businesses, professionals, local authorities, trade unions, consumer and civil society organisations to support the common objective of an ambitious energy savings policy.
