Studies on the EU energy system in support of policy.
In the 2020 and 2030 climate-energy packages, the EU committed to: — lower greenhouse gas emissions by 20 % in 2020 with respect to 1990 and by 40 % in 2030, — reach a share of renewables of 20 % by 2020 and at least 27 % by 2030, — increase energy efficiency levels by 20 % in 2020 and 27 % by 2030. These targets are obviously contributing to a stronger security of supply (in 2013, more than 50 % of EU energy was imported), a more sustainable energy sector, ideally without affecting competitiveness. In this landscape, the electricity network has a central role to play. In 2014, 26 % of the EU's power was generated from renewables. About 10 % of the total EU electricity is sourced from variable renewable electricity (such as wind and solar). Owing to the increasing number of appliances and to the expected penetration of heat pumps and electric vehicles, the share of electricity in the overall energy consumption is expected to rise and the share of renewables in electricity could be as high as 50 % by 2030 with an important contribution from variable sources.
