ITRE held a workshop to look at energy poverty problem in the European Union. The aim of the workshop was to provide expert information on the state of play in the field of energy poverty. Furthermore, it should tackle possible policy initiatives in connection with the ongoing work on legislative packages related to the Energy Union, especially the upcoming reviews of the Energy Efficiency Directive, the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive and a review of electricity market design.

The invited experts provided the academic perspective on energy poverty landscapes in the European Union and will present results of two studies on energy poverty commissioned by the ITRE Committee. In its December 2015 resolution, 'Towards a European Energy Union', the Parliament asked the Commission to present a communication on energy poverty, which would include a definition and indicators of energy poverty, and be accompanied by an action plan on its eradication.


How to support the internationalisation of SMEs and microenterprises

Enterprises employing less than 250 persons form the backbone of the European economy contributing to employment, output and innovation. They account for over 99% of all enterprises, 67% of jobs, and 58% of output. However, only 52% of European SMEs are active in international markets. Moreover, less than 20% of SMEs are involved in internationalisation as subcontractors; and less than 10% of them partnered with a foreign enterprise on R&D and only 4% invested directly in a foreign based firm.

These numbers suggest that there is scope for increased internationalisation of European SMEs. Such a development would desirable from a European policy-maker's point of view as internationalisation tends to create economic growth and jobs, and makes the involved SMEs more resilient to market volatility at home.

The workshop is organised by the Policy Department A: Economic and Scientific Policy for the ITRE Committee.
