With the 2030 Energy and Climate Framework Member States are committed to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions of 40%, a 27% increase of renewable energy sources in the EU’s energy mix and an increase of energy efficiency by 27-30% by 2030. Yet this energy transition is only binding on an EU level and Member States' willingness to translate these targets in national strategies differs widely. In light of the recent proposal for an "Energy Union", how can the EU promote a homogeneous energy transition which is compatible with Member States’ needs for economic growth and fulfilling all targets set until 2030 and beyond?
