The European Environmental Bureau (EEB) welcomes the unprecedented boost in renewables envisaged in the European Commission’s proposal. Deploying millions of solar panels and heat pumps, coupled with building renovation and energy efficiency measures, will take us one step closer to being on track with our Paris Agreement Commitment and will constitute a no-regret option for Europe to strengthen its energy security at times of rapid geopolitical changes.

However, while stepping-up ambition on enhancing renewable energy capacity is a much-awaited step forward, this should not be achieved at the expense of protecting and restoring ecosystems and biodiversity. In fact, the climate and biodiversity crises are deeply intertwined and must be tackled in a comprehensive manner.
