We have just published our Review of Energy Policy: 2018!
Check out the thread below for a summary of all our recommendations.
Read the review in full here: bit.ly/2BsqDqf
On #Transport: The target for phasing our conventionally fuelled vehicles is inadequate. The @transportgovuk ‘Road to Zero’ (‘ICE ban 2040’) may neither hit the target nor make the early gains needed for a 1.5°C trajectory. @_chris_brand_ @jillian_anable
On #electricity: policy should build on Electricity Market Reform that has worked well & adapt in the light of technology/cost changes. Change in ‘black start’ incentives & other ancillary services are needed to ensure the system remains resilient @energyukcomms @ngcontrolroom

(1) Interview with @ClaudeTurmes contains some questionable remarks on possible new EU "net zero by 2050" target
Of course, CBDR applies, but if #ParisAgreement says "in the second half of the century" there are still many possible pathways for EU

(2) According to @ClaudeTurmes, you are in Donald Trump's camp if you'd opt for an EU #climate target like "net zero by 2055". (currently: 80-95% by 2050)
That's an interesting negotiation strategy for the trilogue on EU #EnergyUnion governance

(3) Left column: some of "net zero"-related amendments the @Europarl_EN wants to see
Right column: latest @EUCouncil compromise proposal. Member States' language on headline targets simply refers to #ParisAgreement, w/o CBDR considerations for EU
