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.
New analysis: Member States need to step up their contributions
Brussels, 29 January 2019 – A new assessment of draft national energy and climate plans by the Coalition for Energy Savings shows that Member States’ contributions are inadequate to secure the achievement of the EU 2030 energy efficiency target.
Stakeholder recommendations on how to maximise the benefits of energy transition for citizens and businesses
Brussels, 10 December 2018 – The Coalition for Energy Savings published its first set of high-level recommendations on implementing the EU’s new Energy Efficiency Directive and calls for a dialogue between implementing authorities and stakeholders on how to maximise the benefits of the energy transition for citizens and businesses.<\p>
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.
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.
