Beacons of hope shine out from amongst an otherwise gloomy 'winter package' according to Friends of the Earth Europe, as the European Commission announced its proposals for energy efficiency and renewable energy today.

On the 30th November, the European Commission is expected to publish its winter package, a long-awaited, key piece of the Energy Union strategy. According to environmental groups, leaked documents show that the package will likely disregard the Paris Agreement and fall well short of what the EU needs to do to pull its weight in the fight against climate change.

Using less energy is the best way to cut CO2 emissions, oil and gas imports, and energy bills. This is why Friends of the Earth Europe is calling for binding EU energy saving targets. Binding targets are the only way to make sure governments cut energy use and people get all the benefits of energy savings.
