Six months ago, the European Commission released its “Clean Energy for All Europeans” package. The package would legally implement the EU 2030 climate and energy objectives and prompt a set of important institutional and regulatory changes to enable the European clean energy transition. Six months on, our newsletter looks at the relevance of these timely proposals, taking stock of how the negotiations are proceeding and providing insight on some key emerging issues.
First, we look at what President Trump’s recent decision to pull the US out of the Paris Agreement means for European climate diplomacy and energy policy. Next, we examine key factors shaping the Clean Energy Package negotiations and how they will ultimately affect the outcome. We follow that up by investigating key aspects of the proposals, namely, energy and climate governance with Quentin Genard and efficiency first with Tom Jess and Ingrid Holmes.
