- EU energy consumption to be reduced by 40% by 2030
- At least 35% of all EU energy has to come from renewables by 2030
- Support for consumers who use self-produced energy
Each EU country will have to set its own corresponding national energy-efficiency targets that are needed to reach the overall goal of 40% reduction in energy consumption. These would cover all stages of the energy chain, including generation, transmission, distribution and end-use.
Support schemes for electricity from renewable sources
National authorities need to make sure that financial programmes, supporting measures which increase the share of electricity produced from renewables, are stable and predictable. They should refrain from making frequent changes and avoid all retroactive changes.
