The Energy Union Legislative Package: benchmarks for success
The Energy Union Legislative Package: benchmarks for success. E3G, November 2016, 4 p. (briefing paper)
On 30 November 2016, the European Commission will launch a legislative package on energy. This represents a ‘once-in-a-decade’ set of reforms to the design of electricity markets, to renewables and energy efficiency targets and policies, and to the governance rules for planning and reporting on climate and energy. The “jumbo” package of at least 8 legislative initiatives is likely to run to over 1,000 pages. This briefing note offers a guide for navigating the package and evaluating its success.
