EU Environmental organisations are calling for a holistic approach to the accelerated energy transition envisaged by the proposed revision of renewable energy permit-granting procedures under the REPowerEU legislative proposal. The fight against climate change is a race against the clock.

Transitioning to renewable energy rapidly and at unprecedented scale is a precondition if we are to limit warming to 1.5°C. In a context where the EU needs to boost its energy sovereignty and reduce its dependency on unsafe, climate harming sources, it has now become even more urgent to swiftly scale-up renewable energy capacity.
