EU climate and energy proposals, 22 January

Barroso, EC president

The European Commission has set out proposals on post-2020 climate and energy policy, including for a 40% decarbonisation target for 2030.

To the disappointment of the renewables sector, it proposed doing away with binding national targets for clean energy. An alternative governance system will be developed “in dialogue with member states”, José Manuel Barroso said.

Shale gas recommendations are "a good demonstration of the role the EU should play, setting cross-border rules for environment and safety, but not meddling in the basic energy mix chosen by member states,” he added.

The Commission also tabled legislation to permanently fix the supply-demand imbalance in the European carbon market.
