Voting Recommendations – Governance of the Energy Union

Climate action

CAN Europe together with Birdlife Europe, E3G, the European Environmental Bureau, Fern and WWF EPO prepared joint recommendations for the European Parliament’s Industry and Environment Committees votes on the future Governance Regulation on 7 December.

The Governance of the Energy Union Regulation brings together planning, monitoring and reporting on climate and energy into one coherent framework. This framework has great potential to manage the transition to renewables-based, energy efficient, socially just economies. To be successful however, we must ensure that the regulation is done right: that a long term perspective guides short term planning; that provisions to ensure delivery of targets are robust; and that ambition is ratcheted up over time. We must also ensure it covers the transition’s social dimensions and coherence with EU environmental legislation.
