According to the other provisional deal reached on Wednesday morning, each member state must present an "integrated national energy and climate plan" by 31 December 2019, and subsequently by 1 January 2029, and every ten years thereafter.
The comments made on this by Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy, Miguel Arias Cañete convey a strong sense of optimism in terms of delivering this important aspect of European Commission policy, for clean energy and to save money for consumers.
Miguel Arias Cañete, Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy explains his own thoughts on this initiative: "Thanks to the revised guidance published...it will be easier for schools, hospitals, and other public buildings - which make up more than 10% of the overall European Union building stock - to invest for the objective of improving energy efficiency".
Parliament and Council will evaluate on regular basis progress made on the path towards an Energy Union. The objective of a more ambitious energy efficiency target is to reduce the import dependence of European Union countries on fossil fuels, including.

The current European Union pledge to reduce CO2e emissions by 40% against a 1990 baseline was set in 2016, in line with the Paris Agreement's headline target of keeping the increase in global average temperature below 2C. "They will need to be strengthened in time if we are to meet our climate obligations". We have therefore ensured that the national plans are compatible with the objective of keeping global warming well below 2°C, with the ambition of reaching 1.5°C. This will contribute to have all Member States making the best and most cost-efficient choices and the right investments so that their energy decisions climate-consistent and avoid costly lock-ins. Finally, our efforts to ensure that the problem of fuel poverty is taken seriously at European level have borne fruit.
The increased emissions reduction target looks set to be finalised after the European Commission Ministerial returns from summer recess, as the support of the European Council is required to make the adjustment formal.
