EU outlines renewable energy policy options for 2030

European Union legislators have outlined a compromise deal on the bloc’s renewable energy policy for the coming decade, agreeing on a headline objective of 30-33% for 2030, sources said.

The EU’s 2030 renewable energy policy is slowly taking shape after crunch talks wrapped up in Strasbourg on Thursday (31 May), with a final headline objective likely to land in the range of 30-33%, EURACTIV has learned.

Negotiators from the three EU law-making institutions – the European Commission, Parliament and Council – have agreed the outlines of the bloc’s Renewable Energy Directive, part of a wider clean energy package of legislation, which aims to slash the bloc’s emissions by 40% by the end of the next decade.

Talks to finalise the directive are now expected to conclude during a last round of “trilogue” negotiations scheduled for 13 June.
