In what is called ‘The EU Climate And Energy Package’, European leaders agreed in 2007 on - and enacted in 2009 - a set of targets for Europe to become ‘a highly energy-efficient, low carbon economy’. The package is binding legislation with three key objectives for the year 2020:

  • Greenhouse gas emissions in the EU to be reduced by 20% from 1990 levels. The EU will increase this number to 30% if other major economies commit to bear their fair share of a global emissions reduction effort;
  • The share renewable energy resources in our energy consumption to be increased to 20%;
  • The EU's energy efficiency to be improved by 20%.

The European Commission  presented end November 2016 an updated  package of measures to keep the European Union competitive as the "clean energy transition" is changing global energy markets. The EU has committed to increase the ambitions in cutting CO2 emissions by at least 40% by 2030 while modernising the EU's economy and delivering on jobs and growth for all European citizens. Today's legislative proposals have three main goals: putting energy efficiency first, achieving global leadership in renewable energies and providing a fair deal for consumers.

Update for targets by 2030:

Energy renewables: 32% binding at EU -level

Energy Efficiency: 32,5% non-binding

Both targets include a revision clause by 2023; Read more on this link
