Brussels to unveil EU green strategy amid strong criticism - EUobserver.com
The European Commission is set to table on Wednesday (23 January) a highly controversial set of legislative proposals designed to fight global warming and the EU's dependence on imported energy.

The package has already attracted a lot of attention and criticism, as it will extensively shape future energy and industrial policies in all 27 EU member states.

As part of the proposals, each country will face a mandatory cap on greenhouse gas emissions and a mandatory target for the share of renewable energy in its total energy consumption.

In addition, the commission will overhaul the emissions trading scheme - a cap and trade system designed to curb pollution from industry - as well as the bloc's current state aid rules for funding green projects.
