Today renewable sources cover only 17% of EU energy consumption. Member states had agreed to a target of 27% by 2030, but the parliamentarians have set a more ambitious aim. The EU Parliament’s regulations will serve as a basis for future negotiations with the European Council.

The 35% objective is valid for all EU28. However, each country is free to determine its contribution, although the amended text obliges them to report their national plans and sets benchmarks in case countries are too much away from the objectives set.
