Delivering a new deal for energy consumers

23-05-2016

In July 2015 the European Commission published a communication 'Delivering a New Deal for Energy Consumers', outlining its views on the role of consumers in the Energy Union. This argues that retail energy markets in the EU have not kept up with broader transformations in the energy sector and need to be improved so that consumers can play a more active role and benefit more fully from the single market, renewable energies and new technologies. At the May II plenary session the Parliament is due to vote an own-initiative resolution concerning the 'New Deal'.
