Coalition press release: Half-empty deal for the Energy Efficiency Directive
Brussels, 10th of March 2023
After a long final trilogue, the European Parliament, the Council of the EU and the European Commission reached an agreement this morning on the recast of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED). The deal improves the current law by increasing the 2030 energy efficiency target, but not to the level of REPowerEU, and far from the cost-effective energy savings potential.
Co-legislators agreed on a 2030 EU energy efficiency target of 11.7% (PRIMES 2020) for both final and primary energy. While the EU target in final energy becomes binding, a first for the EU energy efficiency framework, the EU objective in primary energy regrettably remains indicative. National contributions, for both primary and final energy are also indicative, reducing the certainty that the EU target will be met.
