The EU’s Climate and Energy Package was introduced in 2009 to ensure
that the region meets its 20-20-20 targets. The EU plans to reduce its GHG
emissions by 20% and increase the share of renewable energy consumption to
20%. As per EU’s Effort Sharing Directive launched in 2006, each member
country has committed to an indicative 9% reduction in energy usage by 2016
compared to 2005 levels.
Features and benefits
• Analysis of key facets of the EU 20-20-20 targets and the UK' s
interpretation of the same.
• Benchmarking of the UK' s performance against that of other major
European countries in terms of energy efficiency and target achievement.
• Analysis of the UK' s performance with respect to its set targets for
emissions control and energy efficiency.
• Key business opportunities generated by UK' s through policies and
measures undertaken to achieve its emissions and efficiency targets.
The UK sits just outside the set of EU countries with the highest current
potential for manufacturers. Energy consumption reduction targets will open up
the market for environmental engineering, particularly energy performance
assessments and contracts, electrical installations, plumbing, heating,
lighting and ventilation.
The country does have ambitious targets beyond 2020 and a progressive
framework for energy efficiency in place. This is expected to hold significant
opportunities, particularly in the residential and building sectors with the
household energy efficiency market alone expected to be worth £10bn by
The UK has signed up to the EU Renewable Energy Directive, which includes a
UK target of 15% of energy from renewables by 2020. This target is equivalent
to a seven-fold increase in renewable energy consumption from 2008 levels and
represents some of the best investment opportunities of any EU member
Your key questions answered
