Parliament lead committee supports ambitious energy efficiency targets

Climate Alliance welcomes the decision of the European Parliament's Committee on Industry, Research and Energy of 28 November 2017 on ambitious energy efficiency and renewable energy targets. By a narrow majority, the MEPs have opted for a 40 percent efficiency goal by 2030 and for binding targets at national level. The Committee on Environment, Public Health and Food Safety of the European Parliament had already agreed to these goals in September. The file will now move to the plenary of the European Parliament, before the start of negotiations with Council under the Bulgarian presidency.
