European businesses at the forefront of the energy transition call for an ambitious Energy Union Governance

Our organisations are committed to  delivering a clean energy future for Europe . To achieve this goal, we call on European policy-makers to agree on a Governance Regulation that mirrors the ambition and the regime agreed in the Paris Agreement on climate change.

In the global race for clean energy investments,  Europe needs to step up its game to attract the private investment necessary for its energy transition . Investors and businesses must have a strong signal that a low-carbon economy supported by global leadership in energy efficiency and renewable energy is an industrial mission for Europe.

Energy Union Governance can create an enabling framework by  establishing a common scheme for planning and monitoring the energy transition across sectors for the short, medium and long terms . This would allow businesses to plan investments and consequently foster jobs and growth in the European Union.
