Letter to Vice-President Timmermans on Trans-European Energy Infrastructure Planning

Energy transition

Energy infrastructure is a key component in Europe’s fight against climate change. Investments must exclude any continued or new support for infrastructure based on fossil fuels or incompatible with nature protection.

The revision of the Trans-European Energy Infrastructure (TEN-E) regulation will set the rules for Europe’s future energy infrastructure, which should be the backbone of a successful energy transition in line with the Paris Agreement, the European Green Deal, the Climate Law, the Climate Neutrality objective by 2050 and Nature Directives. It must also take into account growing concerns of European citizens: three out of four Europeans consider climate change a very serious problem.
