Renewable energy - 05.02.2016

EU Commission has launched a consultation on the Renewable Energy Directive
In its EU Energy Union strategy, the Commission announced a new renewable energy package for the period after 2020. This package will include a new renewable energy directive for the period 2020-2030 as well as an updated EU bioenergy sustainability policy.

In this context, the Commission wants to consult citizens, associations, and local and regional governments on the new renewable energy directive.

What’s the Renewable Energy Directive?

The Renewable Energy Directive establishes an overall policy for the production and promotion of energy from renewable sources in the EU. It requires the EU to fulfil at least 20% of its total energy needs with renewables by 2020 – to be achieved through the attainment of individual national targets. All EU countries must also ensure that at least 10% of their transport fuels come from renewable sources by 2020.

Target group 

EU and Member States' authorities, energy market participants and their associations, SMEs, energy consumers, NGOs, other relevant stakeholders.


The deadline to fill in the questionaire is 10 February 2016.
