Clean energy in the European Union

11-01-2018

In November 2016, the Commission adopted the clean energy package, of eight legislative proposals on energy efficiency, renewables, electricity markets and governance. During the January plenary session, Parliament will vote on three reports relating to the package: a revised energy efficiency directive, a recast directive on the promotion of renewable energy sources, and a new regulation on governance of the energy union. The aim is to gain a mandate for trilogue negotiations on all three.
