The Fourth Report on the State of the Energy Union is Out

The policies implemented have put the EU on the right track to fully embrace the clean energy transition, seizing the economic opportunities that it offers, creating growth and jobs and a healthier environment for consumers

 

On April 9 the Commission adopted the fourth report on the State of the Energy Union, accompanied by three documents showing the progress in renewable energy, in energy efficiency, and on the implementation of the Action Plan for Batteries.  

 

Building a resilient Energy Union with a forward-looking climate and energy policy has been one of the political priorities of the Juncker Commission. The Energy Union strengthened the internal energy market and increased the EU's energy security by investing into new smart infrastructure and introducing a cooperation mechanism between the Member States based on solidarity. The European Commission declared that: “Four years after the October 2014 European Council, we can now say that we have completed the Energy Union”.

 

As the Commission has recently set out in its Communication “A Clean Planet for All”, the energy transition requires a comprehensive economic and societal transformation, engaging all sectors of the economy and society to achieve the transition to climate neutrality by 2050. The Energy Union framework puts Europe on the right path to become a prosperous, modern, competitive and climate neutral economy. the Commission has put in place an enabling framework of supporting measures to ensure a smooth transition for European industries, regions and cities.

 

Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič, in charge of the Energy Union, declared: “From the daunting challenge of the energy transition we made an economic opportunity for all Europeans”.
