Energy security in the EU's external policy

13-03-2020

This publication describes the link between energy security and the EU's external policy. The EU imports most of its energy, and its biggest supplier is Russia, a country with very different foreign policy goals to the EU's. Energy is a key aspect of the EU's external relations, not only with energy suppliers such as Russia, but also with neighbouring transit countries. Alongside internal measures to integrate European markets, energy diplomacy is a central part of the EU's efforts to address energy ...

New rules for the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER)

12-07-2019

On 30 November 2016, the European Commission presented a legislative proposal for a regulation on the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER), as part of the ‘clean energy for all Europeans’ legislative package. The proposed regulation gives ACER a stronger role in the development of network codes and the coordination of regional decision-making. It furthermore assigns it a number of new tasks related to regional operational centres, the supervision of nominated electricity market ...

On 30 November 2016, the European Commission presented a legislative proposal for a regulation on the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER), as part of the ‘clean energy for all Europeans’ legislative package. The proposed regulation gives ACER a stronger role in the development of network codes and the coordination of regional decision-making. It furthermore assigns it a number of new tasks related to regional operational centres, the supervision of nominated electricity market operators and the assessment of generation adequacy and risk preparedness. In the European Parliament, the proposal was referred to the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE), which adopted its report in February 2018. A provisional trilogue agreement was reached on 11 December 2018. The European Parliament adopted the text in the March II 2019 plenary session and the Council on 22 May 2019. The final act was signed on 5 June 2019 and published in the Official Journal on 14 June 2019. The Regulation entered into force on 4 July 2019. Fourth edition. The ‘EU Legislation in Progress’ briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure. Please note this document has been designed for on-line viewing.

Sector coupling: how can it be enhanced in the EU to foster grid stability and decarbonise?

19-11-2018

Sector coupling involves the increased integration of energy end-use and supply sectors with one another. This can improve the efficiency and flexibility of the energy system as well as its reliability and adequacy. Additionally, sector coupling can reduce the costs of decarbonisation. To foster the full potential of sector coupling in several end-use and supply applications, it is important that existing techno-economic, policy and regulatory barriers are removed. Furthermore, a more integrated ...

To foster the full potential of sector coupling in several end-use and supply applications, it is important that existing techno-economic, policy and regulatory barriers are removed. Furthermore, a more integrated approach to energy systems planning is needed. This document was provided by Policy Department A at the request of the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy.

Research for TRAN Committee - Charging infrastructure for electric road vehicles

20-06-2018

This study analyses the various challenges of the deployment of charging infrastructure within the EU. This includes existing technologies and standardisation issues, metering systems and pricing schemes, business and financing models, the impact of the charging infrastructure on the dissemination of Plug-in Electric Vehicles (PEVs), and the appropriateness of current technologies, business models, and public policies.

Piano d'azione sulle infrastrutture per i combustibili alternativi

06-03-2018

L'8 novembre 2017 la Commissione europea ha adottato il pacchetto per una mobilità pulita, che comprende proposte legislative per contribuire ad accelerare la transizione verso veicoli a basse emissioni e a emissioni zero, nonché una comunicazione su un piano d'azione con soluzioni di investimento per la realizzazione a livello transeuropeo di infrastrutture per i combustibili alternativi. La Commissione presenterà il suo piano d'azione al Parlamento europeo durante la sessione plenaria di marzo. ...

Russia in the southern Caucasus

18-01-2018

Armenia is a Russian ally, Georgia has chosen a pro-Western course, while Azerbaijan has kept its distance from both sides. Despite these differences, Russia has significant economic interests in all three Caucasian countries and enjoys considerable soft power.

The Impact of Brexit on the EU Energy System

23-11-2017

This study provided by Policy Department A at the request of the European Parliament’s Committee on Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE) shows that the energy-system related impact of Brexit on EU citizens and companies will be limited. The EU will be able to complete its market, achieve its climate and energy targets and maintain supply security. It appears likely (although not guaranteed) that the UK will continue to maintain sensible environmental policies and safeguard the rights of EU companies ...

The EU will be able to complete its market, achieve its climate and energy targets and maintain supply security. It appears likely (although not guaranteed) that the UK will continue to maintain sensible environmental policies and safeguard the rights of EU companies in the UK. However, special attention on the impact of Brexit on the Irish energy system is warranted.

Mercato interno dell'energia

01-11-2017

Per armonizzare e liberalizzare il mercato interno dell'energia dell'UE, tra il 1996 e il 2009 sono stati successivamente adottati tre pacchetti legislativi di misure riguardanti l'accesso al mercato e la sua trasparenza e regolamentazione, la tutela dei consumatori, il sostegno all'interconnessione e livelli adeguati di approvvigionamento. Grazie a tali misure, nuovi fornitori di gas ed elettricità possono accedere ai mercati degli Stati membri e i consumatori, sia industriali che domestici, sono ...

Grazie a tali misure, nuovi fornitori di gas ed elettricità possono accedere ai mercati degli Stati membri e i consumatori, sia industriali che domestici, sono ormai liberi di scegliere il proprio fornitore. Altre politiche dell'UE correlate al mercato interno dell'energia riguardano la sicurezza dell'approvvigionamento di energia elettrica, gas e petrolio nonché lo sviluppo di reti transeuropee per il trasporto di elettricità e gas.

Nuove norme sulla sicurezza dell'approvvigionamento di gas

05-09-2017

Nel febbraio 2016 la Commissione ha adottato una proposta volta a rivedere il regolamento del 2010 sulla sicurezza dell'approvvigionamento di gas. I negoziati a tre dei primi mesi del 2017 hanno prodotto un testo concordato approvato dalla commissione per l'industria, la ricerca e l'energia (ITRE) nel maggio 2017. Il Parlamento dovrà votare questo testo durante la plenaria del settembre 2017.
