Dispute over ‘bonkers’ EU energy savings plan
EU commissioners are meeting today to agree an energy savings target for 2030 amid serious disagreement about how ambitious it should be. Several countries, anxious over the security of their Russian gas supplies, are pushing for a tough, binging goal. But EU officials are reluctant to agree because they fear it might damage the overall energy and climate package. BBC.
UK retains target to cut carbon emissions in half
The UK will keep a target to cut greenhouse gases by half through 2025, energy secretary Ed Davey said, foiling the Treasury’s effort to weaken the target. Revising the so-called carbon budget would be premature, given the government’s estimate of the UK and EU levels of ambition of carbon cutting “are likely to be extremely close”, Davey said. Bloomberg.

Government plans to tackle fuel poverty are “inadequate” and “meaningless”, campaigners have warned, after ministers unveiled new targets for insulating homes. About one in ten households in England is classified as “fuel poor”- on low incomes with high energy costs – and the number is projected to have risen this year to an estimated 2.33 million. Telegraph.
