Question reference: E-014085/2015

The Council, at its meeting on 26 November 2015, adopted conclusions on the governance system of the Energy Union(1). These conclusions provide that the governance system will integrate strategic planning and reporting on the implementation of climate and energy policies and will actively foster coordination between actors responsible for climate and energy policy at EU, regional and national level.

These conclusions specify that regional cooperation has proved to be a key instrument for progressing towards, inter alia, the completion of a well functioning internal energy market, for trans-European infrastructure development, for the cost-efficient achievement of energy and climate policy objectives, inter alia by increasing interconnection capacity, and for increasing security of supply. Therefore, enhanced regional cooperation and consultation on issues such as these, where appropriate, will become a cross-cutting and important aspect of the future governance system of the Energy Union and needs to be facilitated or incentivised.

The energy governance implementation will also encourage consultations at national level with civil society and stakeholders and will ensure the trust of investors, consumers and citizens.

Through long-term planning by Member States, covering all five dimensions of the Energy Union equally, the governance system will enhance the stability and predictability of the investment climate.
