Policy Brief

Regional vision of EU-level renewable energy governance and effort sharing for 2030

Policy Brief for the Central and South East Europe Energy Forum

Published: 4 of July, 2016

The current renewable policy period ends in 2020 and the preparation for the post 2020 period is underway, driven by the next EU climate and energy package agreement on a new renewable energy target of at least 27% of final energy consumption in the EU as a whole by 2030. Unlike the current period, this community level target will not be disaggregated into obligatory national targets, but member states are to pledge their contribution to the 27% target. With this type of agreement the achievement of the EU target is not guaranteed, even in the commitment phase, and therefore plans must be devised on how to fill the gap to the target if necessary.
