Hendry argues for more ambitious Energy Efficiency Directive
On Monday 30 April energy minister Charles Hendry provided an overview of the issues discussed at the informal EU environment and energy council meeting on 19 April. He said that, while the EU Emissions Trading Scheme would be able to deliver the EU's 2020 carbon targets, it is not currently providing sufficient investment signals to low-carbon technologies and that there was almost "universal" support for the European Commission to resolve the issue amongst attendees. Alongside other member states Hendry also argued that the draft Energy Efficiency Directive must be more ambitious to ensure it delivers real and additional energy savings.
