Driving regional cooperation forward

In the 2030 renewable energy framework

Published: 15/09/2015

The European Commission, the European Council and the European Parliament have all repeatedly called for regional cooperation in the context of the political debate on the 2030 framework on climate and energy and the Energy Union. This report explores how regional cooperation could be fundamentally strengthened within the 2030 governance and how it can help to reach and exceed the target proposed by the EU Heads of State and Government of at least 27% renewable energy (RES) by 2030. Moreover, regional cooperation can be an integral part of a way forward between nationalisation of RES policies and full harmonisation of RES policies at European level. The report focuses on the regional cooperation on RES targets and support schemes, as those are among the central cornerstones of RES deployment.
