The report is accompanied by two documents showing progress made in renewable energy and energy efficiency. In parallel the Commission is also put forward a communication for more efficient and democratic decision making in EU energy and climate policy.
“The Energy Union is Europe at its best: tackling together the big energy security and energy transition we can't solve within national borders,” declared Sefcovic, who added that “the daunting challenge of the energy transition we made an economic opportunity.”
Cañete emphasized that the Energy Union “has strengthened the internal energy market and increased the EU's energy security by investing into new smart infrastructure (including, cross-border), providing a new state-of-the-art market design and introducing a cooperation mechanism between the Member States based on solidarity to respond to potential crises in a more effective and efficient manner.”
