Wednesday morning, the EU Commission unveiled the key points in its long-awaited "winter package." The central goal of the legislative proposals is, as was expected, to raise the energy efficiency target for 2030 from 27 percent to 30 percent relative to 1990, which will also be made binding. Meanwhile, the target for the share of renewable energy in the total energy consumption will remain at the previous overall level of 27 percent without holding specific member states accountable and attaching to their national targets.
This is according to the 13-page long communique from the Commission. The approximately 1000-page long winter package was presented at a press conference Wednesday 13:00 CET.
