EU climate and energy laws published

A set of five new EU laws on renewable energy, greenhouse gas emissions trading (ETS), carbon dioxide emissions from passenger cars, carbon capture and storage (CCS) and fuel quality will now enter force after their publication in the EU’s Official Journal on 5 June. The laws together make up the climate and energy package adopted by the Council and the Parliament late last year. A Council Decision setting national emission reduction targets for sectors not covered by Europe’s emissions trading scheme (ETS) is also published in the Official Journal.
