A European Energy Union will ensure that Europe has secure, affordable and climate-friendly energy.
Wiser energy use while fighting climate change is both a spur for new jobs and growth and an investment in Europe's future.
The state of the Energy Union shows progress made since the Energy Union Framework Strategy was adopted to bring about the transition to a low-carbon, secure and competitive economy.
The “Clean Energy for all Europeans” package consists of several legislative proposals and three communications on the energy market, energy efficiency, renewables, eco-design and governance of the Energy Union.
MEPs debate and vote to ensure gas pipelines from non-EU countries are covered by EU rules and to create legal clarity for operators
MEPs debate and vote on new rules to create an unhindered European market for electricity and to make it cleaner, more competitive and risk-prepared
This would apply EU rules on gas market (unbundling, independence of supervision etc.) to all gas pipelines from non-EU countires, e.g. Norway, Algeria, Libya, Tunisia, Morocco, Russia and, in future, UK.
Significant investment is needed in the energy sector to help the EU achieve its ambitious climate change targets, which were agreed as part of the Paris Agreement. The Clean Energy for all Europeans package aims to set the legal framework to make this transformation possible. Live replay will be available for this event
