Faced with the challenges of climate change, the European Union has set ambitious targets on several occasions since 2008. With the "fit for 55" legislative package presented in July 2021 by the European Commission, the European Union would aim to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 55% by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050 in all member states. Due to the war in Ukraine, the RePowerEU plan has been adopted in 2022, with notably the objective to reach 45% of renewable energy in electricity production in 2030. Objectives are also assigned in the field of hydrogen.

For instance, France is far from meeting its climate targets (as stated by the French President). The country would have to do twice as much to be on the right track. It means a lot of investment at the same time as facilitating the energy transition.

So, what is the situation in Estonia? How the country is planning to meet targets? How the energy transition can also develop the economy?
