Kulovesi, Kati, Sebastian Oberthür. 2020. Assessing the EU’s 2030 Climate and Energy Policy Framework: Incremental change toward radical transformation? Wiley Online Library.

Abstract

This article provides a comprehensive overview of the changes to European Union (EU) climate and energy law brought about by the 2030 Climate and Energy Policy Framework. It explains the Framework’s background and objectives, and analyses its main legal instruments. It argues that the 2030 Framework incrementally develops and enhances EU climate law without revolutionizing it, advancing in particular its proceduralization. The article also explores the prospects for future change of the 2030 Framework towards more radical transformation in light of the European Green Deal and the ongoing COVID‐19 pandemic.
