[China paint information] on July 23, the European Commission released the energy-saving plan for the next 15 years, in line with the recently formulated five-year new energy and climate strategy, hoping to promote energy conservation, increase employment, enhance economic momentum, and get rid of dependence on imported Russian oil and gas

according to this latest proposal, EU Member States will strive to improve energy efficiency by 30% by 2030 with a long service life. Connie herzegor, EU climate Commissioner, said that this action could reduce the EU's dependence on importing natural gas and other fossil energy from Russia and other countries according to gb/t 1040 (1) 992 "test methods for tensile properties of plastics". He said that energy-saving measures are not only good news for climate and investment, but also good news for Europe's energy security and independence

at present, the EU spends more than 400billion euros a year to import fossil energy, a considerable part of which comes from Russia. The calculation of the European Commission shows that for every 1% of energy saved, EU natural gas imports can be reduced by 2.6%

according to the statistical report of the European Natural Gas Industry Federation, Britain, Spain, Portugal, Denmark and Norway in northern Europe and Switzerland, a neutral country, have the lowest dependence. Germany and Italy, the core countries of the euro zone, both import% of Russian natural gas, and Austria even reaches%, far exceeding the EU average of 24%

due to the high dependence on imported energy, EU leaders attach great importance to the formulation of new energy and climate strategies. At the recently concluded EU summer summit, EU leaders proposed to formulate new energy and climate strategies in the next five years to avoid high dependence on fossil fuels and natural gas imports. In a statement issued after the meeting, EU leaders said that geopolitical events, global energy competition and the impact of climate change have prompted the EU to rethink its energy and climate strategies to meet its own actual conditions. To ensure energy security, the EU aims to establish an "affordable, safe and sustainable" Energy Union

in the next five years, the EU's energy and climate strategy will focus on three aspects: first, developing affordable energy for enterprises and the public, including improving energy efficiency to reduce energy demand, establishing an integrated energy market, and enhancing the EU's bargaining power; Second, ensure energy security and speed up the diversification of energy supply and paths; Third, develop green energy to cope with global warming

as for the new proposal on the 23rd, European Commission Energy Commissioner odinger said that this proposal will promote the EU towards supply security, innovation and sustainability. Although the goal is ambitious, it is realistic. Its purpose is to give the right signal to the market and encourage further investment in energy-saving technologies. When equipment from infrastructure to refrigerators starts to save energy, consumers' costs will be saved

however, this goal has caused controversy. Some industries are mainly opposed to setting hard targets and believe that market forces and EU carbon prices should be used to provide impetus for reducing carbon emissions. Others believe that there should be a target value, and even that the goal of 40% energy saving should be achieved by 2030

Monica, President of the EU energy conservation Federation, said that this proposal is obviously not based on scientific evaluation and strict cost-benefit analysis. Otherwise, a target of 35% - 40% should be proposed, so as to produce the maximum economic benefits and provide more employment

Greenpeace's energy policy adviser said that the European Commission's research cannot leave the experimental site halfway. It has shown that the latest proposal will not only deal with climate change, but also create 3.5 million jobs. They will strive to put the EU's energy policy on track

however, the current proposals on energy conservation are still limited to the EU decision-making level and have not yet become the legal effectiveness goal of Member States
