MEPs want more renewable than heads of state. The compromise should result in a target of 30 to 33% renewable energy for 2030.
The EU’s renewable energy policy is slowly taking shape after decisive negotiations in Strasbourg on 31 May. The final goal should be around 30-33%.
The negotiators of the three EU institutions – the Commission, the Parliament and the Council – have agreed on the main lines of the Renewable Energy Directive, which is part of a broader clean energy package, aimed at reduce emissions by 40% by the end of the next decade.
Discussions to finalize the directive are now expected to conclude during a final round of trilogue negotiations scheduled for 13 June.
