Clean Energy for all Europeans package
The EU has agreed a comprehensive update of its energy policy framework to facilitate the transition away from fossil fuels towards cleaner energy and to deliver on the EU’s Paris Agreement commitments for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
The completion of this new energy rulebook in June 2019 – called the Clean energy for all Europeans package - marks a significant step towards the implementation of the energy union strategy, adopted in 2015.
Based on Commission proposals published in November 2016, the Clean energy for all Europeans package consists of eight legislative acts. After political agreement by the Council and the European Parliament in 2018 and early 2019, enabling all of the new rules to be in force by mid-2019, EU countries have 1-2 years to transpose the new directives into national law.

The AIB has been actively following the developments, including giving expert advice to the EC. AIB continues discussions with its members, officials and stakeholders.
In November 2017 the RE-Source platform was created by SolarPower Europe, Wind Europe, RE100, CDP and WBCSD. This platform will pool resources and coordinate activities to promote a better framework for renewable energy sourcing, at EU and national level.
For example you could find here a range of policy recommendations.
Please note that AIB highly welcomes this initiative, but does not see this fully in line with our mission.
