Several proposals in the ‘fit for 55’ package address energy-related GHG emissions. The principal targets to contribute to the overall 55 % net emissions reduction are a 40 % share of renewable energy sources by 2030, and a substantial reduction of primary and final energy consumption. A higher carbon price through the revision of the EU ETS and the Energy Taxation Directive will drive the roll-out of renewables and energy efficiency improvements.
Links between the proposals:
1. The proposed revised Energy Taxation Directive refers to definitions in the proposed revised Renewable Energy Directive and the proposed revised Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Directive.
2. The proposed revised Gas and Hydrogen Regulation and Gas and Hydrogen Directive refer to the revised Renewable Energy Directive for the definition of renewable gas and low-carbon gas.
3. The proposed revised Renewable Energy Directive refers to the definition of ‘efficient district heating and cooling’ in the proposed revised Energy Efficiency Directive (EED), and the proposed revised Energy Performance of Buildings Directive refers to the definition of ‘energy performance contracting’ in the EED.
4. The proposed revised Energy Efficiency Directive and the proposal for a social climate fund refer to each other with respect to use of the fund.
