A lot has happened with the Clean Energy Package in the last couple of months. The Council adopted its general approach to the package in December, and the European Parliament adopted its position on the Renewable Energy Directive, the Energy Efficiency Directive and the Governance Regulation at the end of January.
On energy communities, the positions between the Parliament and the Council differ greatly, with the latter taking a rather obstructive stance towards enabling energy citizens. We expect a challenging debate, starting at the end of February. In the meantime, the ITRE Committee of the European Parliament will vote on amendments to market design legislation on the 21st of February. Contact your MEP now!
REScoop.eu organises a webinar to debrief her members on where the files of the Clean Energy Package stand and where we stand with our priorities and issues. Please fill out this Doodle to share your interest and availability.
