Brexit impact

11 pm (GMT) on 31 December 2020 marks the end of the Brexit transition/implementation period entered into following the UK’s withdrawal from the EU. At this point in time (referred to in UK law as ‘IP completion day’), key transitional arrangements come to an end and significant changes begin to take effect across the UK’s legal regime. Any changes relevant to this content will be set out below. For further guidance, see Practice Note: Brexit—impact on environmental law and News Analysis: Brexit Bulletin—key updates, research tips and resources.

Overview

The 2030 climate and energy framework set three key targets for the year 2030:

  1. at least 40% cuts in greenhouse gas emissions from 1990 levels

  2. at least 27% share for renewable energy

  3. at least 27% improvement in energy efficiency

In 2018 these targets were revised under the Clean Energy for All Europeans Package (the Clean Energy Package) as follows:

  1. at least 45% cuts in greenhouse gas emissions from 1990 levels

  2. at least 32% share for renewable energy

  3. at least 32.5% improvement in energy efficiency

The framework was adopted by European Union (EU) leaders in October 2014 (European Council meeting of October 2014). It builds on the 2020 EU Climate and Energy Package—snapshot.

The 2030 framework is in line
