EU Commission agrees 30 percent energy savings goal for 2030: sources

By Barbara Lewis BRUSSELS (Reuters) – The European Commission agreed on Wednesday to put forward a target to improve energy efficiency by 30 percent as part of a package of climate and energy policy for 2030, EU sources said. Member states will decide whether the target should be binding on individual nations or at an EU-wide level, said two sources, requesting anonymity as they are not authorized to speak to the media. energy efficiency has gained popularity in the context of the Ukraine crisis as EU countries seek to do all they can to reduce the need for imported Russian energy. Following on from Wednesday’s decision by the European commissioners, member states have set themselves an October deadline to agree on 2030 climate and energy policy.
