The EU aims to progressively decrease primary energy consumption by supporting innovation through research and demonstration of more energy-efficient technologies and solutions; and market uptake measures to remove market and governance barriers by addressing financing, regulations and the improvement of skills and knowledge. Domains of focus include buildings, industry, heating and cooling, SMEs and energy-related products and services, integration of ICT and cooperation with the telecom sector. The EU has been at the forefront when addressing the causes and challenges of climate change and strengthening a concerted global response in the framework of the Paris Agreement. The European Commission presented in November 2018 its vision for achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. The Energy Union Strategy provides the regulatory framework for achieving the EU’s 2030 greenhouse gas emission reduction target – a decrease by 40% compared to 1990 levels– in a cost-efficient way, including the EU Emission Trading Scheme, EU legislation and national targets. Sectoral EU legislation, such as the Clean Energy for All package and the Clean Mobility packages, imply major market transformation by 2030 in the energy and transport sectors.
