984 views

On 27 March 2013, Connie Hedegaard, Member of the EC in charge of Climate Action, and Günther Oettinger, Member of the EC in charge of Energy, gave a press conference at the European Commission in Brussels and jointly kicked-off a public debate on 2030 energy and EU climate framework, indicating a readiness to move quickly towards setting a new greenhouse-gas emissions target for 2030. On this date, the European Commission adopted a Green Paper which is meant to gauge the opinion of stakeholders about the new targets. The EU's existing targets are a 20% reduction in emissions, a 20% increase in renewable energy and a 20% increase in energy efficiency by 2020. The European Commission also published a Consultative Communication on the future of carbon capture and storage (CCS) in Europe, aimed at initiating a debate on the options available to ensure its timely development. Finally, it adopted a report assessing Member States' progress towards their 2020 renewable energy targets and reports on the sustainability of biofuels and bioliquids consumed in the EU.
