Debate on the Clean Energy Package in the Transport, Telecommunications and Energy (TTE) Council
The European Commission’s Clean Energy Package will stimulate investment in the clean energy transition and deliver on the creation of the Energy Union and the Paris Agreement. In addition, it will transform the way in which the internal energy market functions, while facilitating the integration of renewables in the market and improving competition. Out of the three files within the package, a political agreement was found between the Commission and the co-legislators on the Renewable Energy Directive, following a debate in the TTE Council held on June 11. The Energy Efficiency and Governance of the Energy Union files are also expected to be soon concluded. The aim is to finalise the work on the package before the end of the Bulgarian Presidency.
