No consensus over 2030 EU renewables policy

Energy ministers from the 27 EU countries pledged to maintain momentum given by the European Commission to move beyond 20% greenhouse gas emission reductions for a post-2020 renewables policy framework.
However, after the Energy Council on Monday 3 December the Irish Energy Minister Pat Rabbitte said there was “no consensus around the table yet” on renewables targets for 2030, although discussions would continue under the Irish presidency, which begins on 1 January.
“A substantial body of states wants to maintain the momentum offered by Commission proposals but some – like Poland – are strongly opposed to binding targets being fixed after 2020,” he told reporters in Brussels.
EU states such as Denmark and the Netherlands favour extending the approach to 2030. But despite a call by the energy commissioner for a decision on new targets before 2014 at the launch of the EU’s energy roadmap a year ago, discussions are still ongoing.
