On 22 January, the European Commission will release a package of draft climate and energy policies which will include proposed 2030 targets for the EU to cut carbon emissions and increase the share of renewables in the energy system. A separate target for energy savings is expected to be dropped until a review of existing legislation later this year. The package will also include a legislative proposal on how to fix the EU’s ailing carbon market, the Emissions Trading System (ETS).
