2030 climate & energy framework

Teacher Diedert Debusscher, Ales Sinkovec


The European Union has agreed on a new 2030 Framework for climate and energy, which includes EU-wide targets and policy objectives for the period between 2020 and 2030. The targets aim to help the EU achieve a more competitive, secure and sustainable energy system and to meet its long-term 2050 greenhouse gas reductions target as set out in the 2050 Low Carbon Roadmap.

The framework was created to communicate to the market a clear commitment by the EU in view of encouraging private investment in new networks and low-carbon technologies. The targets themselves are based on a thorough analysis made by the European Commission that measured how to cost-effectively achieve decarbonisation by 2050.

The key targets are:

  • * 40% cut in greenhouse gas emissions (from 1990 levels);
  • * at least 27% of EU energy from renewables in terms of final consumption;
  • * and, at least 27% energy savings compared to business-as-usual.

This course will cover all aspects of the energy and climate framework in a holistic manner, including: the three key targets of GHG emissions reductions, renewables expansion and energy efficiency increase; the new planned governance system; and issues concerning the competitiveness and security of the EU’s energy supply.
