Yesterday, the negotiations on the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) came to the end with reaching the compromise on a 32% renewables target. This time the final agreement includes a legally binding EU-wide target of 32% for the renewable energy by 2030, with an “upward review clause” by 2030.
However, the talks on Energy Efficiency Directive (EED) did not bring any progress. The main disagreement is still the energy efficiency target on which the Parliament did not want to go below a 32,5% for the energy savings along with a 0.84% of the annual savings, which was refused by the Council.
At this point, it is still unclear whether the Bulgarian Presidency can still review talks before the end of their turn in the end of June or it will be up to the upcoming Austrian Presidency to proceed with the work.
