The long awaited and much anticipated Energy Union “Jumbo Package” – a package of 8 new and reviewed EU energy draft legislation; on Twitter a.k.a. #EnergyUnionPackage – is currently in so-called Inter Service Consultation within the European Commission. The package is scheduled to be adopted, presented and published on Wednesday 30 November.
Member of European Parliament & Spokesperson for energy policy of the European Greens Claude Turmes just published a preview of the package – and it’s not looking good:
- EU Commission should put energy efficiency first
- Don’t organise a lost decade for renewables in Europe
- Place consumers at the centre of the system
‘The Winter Package should be assessed against the political promises of president Juncker. First indications are not encouraging. The Commission should do better!’@StollmeyerEU
