posted in: news | 0

The Parliament wants to boost energy efficiency, with a binding target to reduce consumption by 35% in 2030, and increase the share of renewables to 35% of the total.

The plenary supported on Wednesday the proposal of the parliamentary committee of Industry to establish binding targets for the EU as a whole to boost efficiency and renewable energies. In this area, in addition to a global share of 35%, MEPs ask that 12% of the energy used by the transport sector in 2030 come from renewable sources.
