The Road to Katowice: Taking the Clean Energy Files to the Next Level

Published: 12 November 2018

Policies & Issues: Energy & Climate

This week, the plenary of the European Parliament is to vote on the provisional deals reached with Member States in June this year on the Commission’s clean energy proposals for an amended energy efficiency directive, amended directive on renewable energy sources and a new governance regulation.

Pending formal approval by the Council, this will mark a further milestone in the European clean energy transition and on the path to sustainability for our planet, Europe’s citizens and economy just few weeks ahead of the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP24).

Orgalime representing Europe’s Technology Industries looks forward to this important step that is not only to amplify Europe’s energy efficiency and renewable energy ambition but also to empower consumers and give them the right to self-generate, self-consume, store, manage and sell electricity while optimising their overall carbon footprint and environmental performance.

Preserving the overall coherence and consistency throughout the clean energy package matters, as only coherent and coordinated answers to the many interlinked and mutually dependent issues throughout all clean energy files can provide the urgently needed investment certainty and bring innovation, such as value-cocreation, connectivity or real-time measurements, to European citizens.
