    The EU is funding various projects on issues around energy efficiency and building renovation. Yet, while similar projects address the same challenges, there is little or no information exchange and collaboration between them.

The 2030 Framework for climate and energy sets as EU-wide targets for 2030 a 40% cut in greenhouse gas emissions compared to 1990 level, and at least a 27% share of renewable energy consumption. For the power system, this means a share of at least 45% of electricity demand generated from renewable sources (European Commission), compared to 27.5% in 2014 (Eurostat).

The Commission adopted today a draft mandate to engage -- on behalf of the European Union in the negotiations to modernise the Energy Charter Treaty (ECT) -- a plurilateral trade and investment agreement applicable to the energy sector to which the EU is part. These negotiations aim to revise the provisions of the Treaty in a way to reflect the EU’s reformed approach on investment protection and achieve greater legal certainty and clarity of the rules applicable to the protection of investments.
