Member states’ answer to low renewables ambition: Interim targets

(EurActiv, 1 Dec 2017) The European Parliament says the EU’s proposed 2030 target for renewable energy needs to be raised in order to speed up deployment early in the next decade. But EU member states have a different idea.

This week, the Parliament’s Committee on Industry, Research and Energy voted to raise the proposed target for the share of renewables in the EU’s energy mix, from the Commission’s proposed 27% to 35%.
