The European Commission has published its Energy Efficiency Communication, which proposes a higher and achievable energy savings target for 2030.

The expected benefits of the energy efficiency target for 2030 include new opportunities for European businesses, affordable energy bills for consumers, increased energy security through a significant reduction of natural gas imports and a positive impact on the environment.

The Communication on energy efficiency and its contribution to energy security and the 2030 framework also reviews progress towards the European Union’s 20% energy efficiency target for 2020
