Neither the 27% who wanted the European Council , or 35% of the Europarliament . The last trilogue held last Thursday between the legislative institutions of the European Union to approve the Renewables Directive of the ‘winter package’ has opened the door for negotiations to reach their final stage. There is even talk that they could finish in a final “tripartite” round scheduled for next June 13 .
And all because at the last minute Bulgaria , which holds the six-month rotating presidency of the European Council (and which ends this month), put on the table two options unthinkable until now: an objective for renewable in 2030 of 30% or 33%.
The European Parliament voted in January to increase the share of renewable energies to 35% in the EU energy mix by 2030, which provided a tense scenario for talks with the Member States, which were reluctant to do so. proposal since they agreed on a 27% target just one month earlier, in December 2017.
