Hi Aditya,

the default value is -1*HUGE(), which essentially means that the 
optimization will never stop because of E_TARGET. This keyword is only 
useful when you (roughly) know the minimum energy of your system.

Note that the global optimization algorithms in CP2K are a bit dated. You 
might want to have a look at ASE instead:
