Renewable energy will play a fundamental role in achieving the EU’s energy and climate objectives. Not only is it abundantly available within the EU, but it is also cost-competitive with fossil fuels. As such, it can help make our energy systems more affordable and reduce the EU’s dependency on imported fossil fuels. It also has the potential to provide a range of new jobs, create new industrial opportunities and contribute to economic growth.     Renewable energy progress over time

The purpose of the calculator is to build an energy pathway that hits the 80% CO2 emission reduction target at the top of the page. As you get closer to achieving this the arrow will move to the right.   The calculator models what is thought to be physically and technically possible in forty-two different sectors. It is based on scientific and engineering data and was built in collaboration with a wide range of organisations from inside and outside of government.

The European Construction Sector Observatory depicts Romania as being behind the implementation of the 2010/31/EU Directive and the Nearly Zero Energy Bulding (NZEB) concept. Nonetheless, after 31st December 2018, all new buildings occupied and owned by public authorities should be NZEB. This requirement will be applicable to all new buildings as from 2021.

The Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) has published its Energy- Related CO₂ Emissions in Ireland report. The report shows that energy-related CO₂ emissions declined slightly in 2018, even as energy use increased. This was due to changes in the mix of fuels used, particularly for electricity generation, where more renewable energy and less coal was used. However, the overall reduction was not enough to keep Ireland on track to meet long term decarbonisation goals.
