The European Union committed itself in 2009 to the reduction of its Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by between 80 and 95% by 2050. The European Climate Foundation (ECF) has commissioned a series of reports from various sector experts to quantify that goal, assess how it can be achieved and what its impacts might be.
Energy Savings 2020 is the latest report in the series. The role of this report is to assess the impact of current EU energy and climate policies and to make recommendations on the design of an overarching energy saving policy framework to achieve Europe’s 20% energy savings target by 2020 as a vital step to meet its 2050 GHG commitment.
The report was commissioned by the European Climate Foundation (ECF) and the Regulatory Assistance Project (RAP).
Stefan Scheuer was advisor to ECF in this project.
