EU Signs off Clean Energy Package

The EU Council of Ministers adopted a package of 'Clean Energy for All Europeans' legislation December 4, comprising directives on energy efficiency, renewables, and governance.

Three weeks ago the European Commission welcomed their adoption by the European Parliament; adoption by the EU Council was the final hurdle before they became law.

Among other things, the package commits the European Union by 2030 to obtain 32% of its energy from renewable sources and achieve an energy efficiency headline target of 32.5%.

A press release from the EU Council about its final signing off of the package is available here(See also the final para of this article posted Dec.19)
