    Europe: Written question – Energy from renewable sources – 2030 – E-000176/2022

    January 22, 2022 -


      Source: European Parliament

      The written answer(1) that Commissioner Simson sent me on behalf of the Commission on 28 October 2021 regarding the production of electricity from renewable sources in 2030 stated that: ‘The projections in the MIX scenario […] indicate the gross electricity generation of some 3,150 Terawatt-hours (TWh) with the following shares: 4 % solids, 13 % natural gas, 16 % nuclear and 65 % renewables, including biomass.’

      At the same time, Directive (EU) 2018/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 December 2018 on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources laid down in Article 3 (Binding overall Union target for 2030) that Member States must collectively ensure that the share of energy from renewable sources in the Union’s gross final consumption of energy in 2030 is at least 40 %.

      Is the Commission willing to explain the grounds for this significant difference, between the 65 % projected in the MIX scenario, which is considered the central scenario by all Green Deal impact assessments, according to the answer from Commissioner Simson, and the 40 % share of energy from renewable sources as laid down by the abovementioned directive?
