On Thursday, 14 June 2018, in the morning, the Commission, the EP and the EU Council agreed a new directive on renewable energy. The target for energy from renewable sources in 2030 is 32 percent with the need to periodically check implementation and the possibility of increasing – said Miguel Arias Canete, European Commissioner for Energy and Climate. This means that in 12 years more than 1/3 of energy in the European Union is to come from wind farms, solar panels, hydroelectric plants and other installations that do not burn fossil fuels.
In addition, the objective of renewable energy in transport is 14 per cent, and a strong reduction of first-generation biofuels and biofuels imports has been assumed. A large strengthening of the role of prosumers, i.e. installations with a capacity below 25 kW, was also assumed.
