EEA Report: Faster Energy Transition Needed

A new report by the European Environment Agency shows that the EU needs to ramp up the share in renewable energy and energy efficiency.

Despite a decrease of greenhouse gas emissions in the EU from 2017 to 2018, the progress in renewable energy share and energy efficiency is clearly too slow.

The report “Trends and projections” by the EEA also shows that more emission cuts could be achieved if Member States revive the boom of renewable energy, and more importantly if they push energy savings a lot more than currently as the EU’s energy efficiency target for 2020 is clearly at risk of not being met. It also highlights that Member States have to greatly accelerate the pace of the energy transition in the next decade for the EU to meet its 2030 energy targets.

“It is good that finally greenhouse gas emissions are going down again, but the EEA’s report clearly shows that more can be done if Member States pick up the pace on further developing renewable energy and energy savings. Stepping up progress in the clean energy transition should be a no-brainer as renewable energy is becoming cheaper than fossil technologies," says Wendel Trio, Director of Climate Action Network (CAN) Europe. "The energy efficiency gap must be filled as otherwise the European economies and citizens will keep missing out on the various benefits energy savings have to offer.”

“In order to achieve ambitious greenhouse gas emission cuts by 2030, EU countries’ energy and climate plans must aim at accelerating the pace of the clean energy transition and phasing out the use of fossil fuels. This is the only way for them to account to the millions of citizens who are demanding concrete and rapid action to prevent the worsening of climate change.”
