In fact, since the original commitments assumed by the members (20% of reduction of greenhouse effect, in relation with the 1990 levels, 20% of renewal energy and an increase on 20% of energy efficient), the goal have changed for 2030 (at least 40% of reduction in greenhouse effect, in relation with 1990 levels, at least 27% of renewal energy and 27% of improvement in energy efficient) This “waybill” guide us to a low-carbon competitive economy for 2050, which considerates more the weather and consumes less energy (80% of reduction of greenhouse effect, in relation with 1990 levels, going to reach a 60% by 2024).
