Debate: next steps in shaping the Energy Union
The second State of the Energy Union report will be debated with Commission Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič on Wednesday at 15.00.
With eight additional proposals (“Clean energy package”) tabled in November 2016, about 80% of the legislation needed to complete the Energy Union is now in the legislative process to ensure that Europe has secure, affordable and climate-friendly energy.
Parliament and the Council have reached a provisional deal on energy intergovernmental agreements, and are now debating new rules on energy efficiency labelling. They are also due to start talks soon on security of gas supply proposals.
The legislative proposals cover energy efficiency, renewable energy, the design of the electricity market, security of electricity supply and governance rules for the Energy Union. Parliament’s Industry Committee is about to start examining the proposals.
Procedure: Commission statement
