Renewable energy targets 2020 and 2030

Renewable energy targets 2020 and 2030

The EU’s Renewable energy directive sets a binding target of 20% final energy consumption from renewable sources by 2020. To achieve this, EU countries have committed to reaching their own national renewables targets ranging from 10% in Malta to 49% in Sweden. They are also each required to have at least 10% of their transport fuels come from renewable sources by 2020.

All EU countries have adopted national renewable energy action plans showing what actions they intend to take to meet their renewables targets. These plans include sectorial targets for electricity, heating and cooling, and transport; planned policy measures; the different mix of renewables technologies they expect to employ; and the planned use of cooperation mechanisms.

New targets for renewable energy in 2030

Renewables will continue to play a key role in helping the EU meet its energy needs beyond 2020. EU countries have already agreed on a new renewable energy target of at least 27% of final energy consumption in the EU as a whole by 2030. This target is part of the EU’s energy and climate goals for 2030.

Renewable energy can be produced from a wide variety of sources including wind, solar, hydro, tidal, geothermal, and biomass. By using more renewables to meet its energy needs, the EU lowers its dependence on imported fossil fuels and makes its energy production more sustainable. The renewable energy industry also drives technological innovation and employment across Europe.

If your company operate into the renewable energy sector and if you have important projects, European Energy Union will bring to your projects a positive contribution to present them at european level by giving them political visibility, lacks vision, focus, flexibility and investors with strong liquidity or financial instruments.

The European energy projects Forum 2017 is the premier invitation dedicated for CEO or top management of companies from energy markets, industry, finance, investment funds and policy.
