In the context of the European Green Deal, the European Commission will overhaul the relevant climate and energy legislation to align with the newly proposed target to reduce GHG emissions by at least 55% by 2030. This will be brought together in a ‘Fit for 55 Package’, which will cover everything from renewables to energy efficiency, buildings, land use, energy taxation, effort sharing and emissions trading, as well as a wide range of other pieces of legislation.
The purpose of this project is to provide analysis and materials that can be communicated to public authorities, especially the ministries of energy and environment, that can provide support for the EU-level negotiations and the immediate decarbonization priorities. Our aim is to delineate Romania’s priorities in the context of the Fit-for-55% package and to analyse the two key issues for decarbonisation: coal phaseout and offshore wind.
The European Climate Foundation is dedicated to responding to the global climate crisis by creating a net-zero greenhouse gas emissions society by harnessing the power of effective philanthropy to support the climate community in shaping public debate and forging bold solutions.
The ECF strengthens European climate leadership at every level, from supporting local campaigns to informing EU policy making. The ECF’s institutional strengths and flexible funding allow it to act both as a steady partner and a nimble innovator. To effect lasting change, it is also essential that we coordinate our efforts beyond our borders. The ECF is part of a highly supportive global network to stimulate climate-related policy work worldwide
