The creation of an Energy Union can play a major role in tackling our collective energy and climate challenges, supporting the economic recovery and building a more competitive Europe.
Now is the time to translate the Commission’s Strategy into concrete results by completing the Internal Energy Market, securing diversity of energy supply and infrastructure, promoting energy efficiency and delivering on the EU's climate change ambitions.
The CBI has identified four priorities for EU institutions to focus on in the coming months and years in order to achieve an Energy Union which delivers long-lasting growth and prosperity for all:
- Accelerate the completion of the Internal Energy Market to offer more choice and competitive prices for business and consumers
- Ensure energy security through diversity of supply and improved infrastructure
- Promote energy efficiency and innovation through effective funding and market-led solutions
- Deliver the EU’s ambitions in fighting climate change through coordinated governance of the Energy Union and 2030 targets.
