Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 138
Nicolás González Casares
 Subject: Impact of Brexit on the Union’s energy and climate objectives

Bearing in mind that, on 1 February 2020, the United Kingdom withdrew from the Union and Euratom and that, as indicated in the report ‘EU Power Sector Review of 2019’ by Agora Energiewende and Sandbag, the actual impact of Brexit on the future EU climate and energy framework will depend on the future relationship between the EU27 and the United Kingdom, I would like to ask the following:

What impact will Brexit will have on the EU’s ability to meet its 2020 energy and climate targets, in particular as regards renewable energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions? What measures and proposals is the Commission considering to ensure that the objectives are met in the EU without the United Kingdom?

This report indicates, for example, that, taking Brexit into account, the greenhouse gas emission levels of the EU 27  in 2018 did not correspond to 23.2 % but to 20.6 %, i.e. below the 1990 emission levels.

What measures is the Commission considering in order to adjust, where necessary, the targets set in the ‘Green Energy Package’ for 2030, notably as regards renewable sources of energy?
