The European Parliament and the Council Presidency have reached a preliminary political agreement to reduce EU final energy consumption by 11.7% in 2030.

Earlier today, EU officials said member states will be given some flexibility in reaching the target.

They said the target translates into an upper limit of 763 million tonnes of oil equivalent for final consumption and 993 million tonnes of oil equivalent for primary consumption.

Member states will contribute to the overall target through indicative national contributions and trajectories set in their integrated national energy and climate plans.

The Commission will correct contributions that fall short of the target.

The EU Council said the public sector must achieve an annual energy consumption reduction of 1.9%, excluding public transport and armed forces.

Member states must also renovate at least 3% of public buildings‘ total floor area each year.
