Governance for the European Energy Union

April 2019

Position Paper (PDF)

Summary of the Position Paper (PDF)

Only with a common strategy on climate and energy policy can the EU contribute towards implementing the Paris Agreement. A Governance Regulation is intended to oversee European climate and energy policy. However, in view of its limited legislative competence in energy policy, how can the EU create a carbon-neutral energy system in Europe? The Position Paper comes to the conclusion that only if the EU Commission and EU legislature, as well as a vanguard of ambitious Member States, effectively utilise the scope of the Regulation, it will be possible to make European energy supplies both climate-friendly and secure.
