Clean Energy for all Europeans package
DG ENER proposed in November 2016 to revise the Renewable Energy Directive and the Internal Markets Directive, which form part of the EU Commission Package “Clean Energy for All Europeans”.
Aim is to update the EU's energy policy framework in a way that will facilitate the clean energy transition and make it fit for the 21st century. Negotiations have now been concluded on all aspects of the new energy legislative framework, and all of the new rules are formally adopted during the first few months of 2019.
More information can be found here.
The AIB is actively following the developments and continues discussions with its members, officials and stakeholders.
Directives related to the work range of AIB can be found here.
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.
