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.

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.

Bloomberg.

Telegraph.
