Clean Energy Package: recommendations for finalising the energy efficiency, renewables, governance and electricity market design proposals

Published: 17 April 2018

Policies & Issues: Energy & Climate

By adopting the Paris Agreement on climate change and the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development in 2015, governments from around the world chose a more sustainable path for our planet and our economy.

Energy plays a fundamental role in delivering on these commitments. And so finalising the remaining files of the Clean Energy Package in a timely manner in 2018 and with a forward-looking, genuinely sustainable approach will provide Europe with a unique opportunity: to boost local jobs and growth at home, while delivering a win-win for all stakeholders – for the planet, for EU citizens and for European industry.

In light of the three objectives of the Clean Energy Package – to prioritise energy efficiency, achieve global leadership in renewable energy, and provide a fair deal for consumers – Orgalime is calling on policy makers, in particular EU Member States, to install a number of key ambitions into the final pending Clean Energy files.
