European Heads of State on Friday agreed to set a binding target of 27% for renewable energy in the EU for 2030 – a decision that surprised few and disappointed many.
The binding nature of the renewable energy target at an EU level was welcomed, but the 27% goal was deemed too low by renewable energy advocates in the solar and wind industries. A non-binding energy efficiency target of 27% was also criticized, although the broader pact to cut greenhouse gases by 40% by 2030 was at least seen as a sign of ambition to act on climate change.
