On Tuesday, Parliament voted to increase the deployment of renewable energy, aligning with the Green Deal and REPowerEU plans.
The updated Renewable Energy Directive (RED) aims to raise the share of renewables in the EU's final energy consumption to 42.5% by 2030, with a target of 45% for member states.
The legislation will expedite permit procedures for new renewable energy installations and promote the use of advanced biofuels and non-biological renewable fuels in the transport sector (14.5% reduction on greenhouse emission).
MEPs also secured targets for innovative renewable energy technology and stricter criteria for biomass use.
The legislation, adopted with 470 votes to 120, will require formal endorsement by the Council to become law, representing a significant step towards a greener European energy future.
