Final Conference Towards2030 project "The Winter Package 2016: Which Way Forward for Renewables in Europe?"

The European Commission is currently preparing new legislative initiatives on renewables, energy efficiency, market design and governance. With this “Winter Package”, to be published towards the end of the year, the EU is entering a crucial phase for implementing a solid framework aimed at reaching the EU-wide binding 2030 renewable energy target. The towards2030-dialogue project has been facilitating and guiding the dialogue on this issue throughout Europe for the past two years. This final conference presents key results and provides a stage for discussing the way forward.
