According to the fourth report on the state of the energy union adopted on Tuesday, the European Commission has fully fulfilled its commitments on its vision for an energy union strategy that guarantees affordable, safe, competitive and sustainable energy for all Europeans, informs a press release of the EU Executive.
The report is accompanied by two documents showing the progress made in the field of renewable energy and energy efficiency. At the same time, the Commission is also presenting a report on the implementation of the Strategic Action Plan on batteries and communication on a more efficient and democratic decision-making process within the EU’s energy and climate policy, according to Agerpres.
“Our report shows how all energy-intensive measures combine to make our policy prepared for the future. We now have a structure capable of redirecting investment to forward-looking technologies and solutions. We took measures for industry such as battery manufacture in Europe, while ensuring that we will not leave behind any Europeans throughout the transition process,” EC Deputy President Maros Sefcovic said.
“We must continue to implement renewable energy across Europe and step up our efforts to save more energy. We need to engage in a transformation process, being aware of the immediate urgency of this need to a greater extent than is happening in present,” also said Climate and Energy Commissioner, Miguel Arias Cañete.
