The Clean Energy Package Directives

The Clean Energy for All Europeans legislative proposals cover energy efficiency, renewable energy, the design of the electricity market, security of electricity supply and governance rules for the Energy Union. In addition the Commission proposed a new way forward for ecodesign as well as a strategy for connected and automated mobility.

The package also includes actions to accelerate clean energy innovation and to renovate Europe's buildings. It provides measures to encourage public and private investment, promote EU industrial competitiveness and mitigate the societal impact of the clean energy transition. 

The European Council agreed on the 2030 climate and energy policy framework for the EU setting an ambitious economy-wide domestic target of at least 40% greenhouse gas emission reduction for 2030. Implementing the 2030 energy and climate framework as agreed by the European Council is a priority in follow up to the Paris Agreement.

The European Commission adopts today proposals for a revision of the Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) and of the European Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) to bring them up to date with the 2030 energy and climate goals, to check their effectiveness, to simplify and improve the text, and to facilitate implementation at national level. On the basis of a comprehensive costs and benefits assessment,  the EU Commission also proposes to review the target to be reached by 2030 to a binding energy efficiency 30% EU level emphasizing the European Union’s commitment to its international climate and energy goals for 2030 and beyond.

Renewables will play a major role in the transition to a clean energy system. Europe has set itself a target to collectively reach a share of at least  27% renewables in the final energy consumption by 2030.
