Context :

A policy window is currently open in Europe with the revision of the 2030 climate and energy framework. Negotiations are ongoing between EU institutions on several legislative texts, including the renewable energy directive, the energy efficiency directive and a regulation on the Governance of the Energy Union.

I4CE – Institute for Climate Economics- and Enerdata make two observations:

  1. One the one side, counterproductive interactions within the 2030 climate and energy framework undermine its effectiveness and jeopardize the achievement of climate targets. Legislative texts currently under negotiation lack the necessary provisions to mitigate these effects.
  1. On the other, the 2030 climate and energy framework falls short of the EU long-term ambition, which is itself insufficient to respect its commitment under the Paris Agreement.

Entitled « Mind the gap: aligning the 2030 EU climate and energy policy framework to meet long-term climate goals », the study analyses and quantifies the interactions within the energy and climate framework. The study then describes policy options to implement an ambitious and coherent policy mix, which would enable the EU to respect its commitment under the Paris Agreement.

    European Carbon Certification: the unlikely alliance

    The future European carbon certification framework is under intense debate. The first meeting of the expert group in charge of supporting the Commission has raised criticisms on the composition and mandate of this group, and the discussions have taken an unexpected turn by achieving the feat of bringing NGOs and CO2 Capture and Storage (CCS) industrialists to an agreement against natural carbon sinks, those of our forests or our agricultural soils. Where does this unlikely alliance come from?

    Net Zero Industry Act: Europe in the race for cleantech

    The European Union still has a lot of work to do. Yesterday the European Commission published its Net Zero Industry Act, a piece of its response to the American Inflation Reduction Act, a necessary but still insufficient building block to keep the European Union in global cleantech race. It will also have to complete a number of directives and regulations to deliver its Green Deal. The EU election in 2024 is fast approaching, time is of the essence.
