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”.
The AIB is actively following the developments and 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.
