European Parliament, Belgium
Wednesday, December 7, 2016

Towards2030-dialogue successfully organized the European Parliament Policy Event: “The new Energy Union Package: Ambitious Enough?” which took place on the 7th December 2016 in Brussels.

On the 30th of November the European Commission presented a package of measures to keep the European Union competitive as the clean energy transition is changing the global energy markets. With this “Winter Package” the EU is entering a crucial phase for implementing a solid framework aimed at reaching the EU-wide binding 2030 RES target including new legislative initiatives on renewables, energy efficiency, market design and governance.

This policy event at the European Parliament presented key results and provided a stage for discussing the way forward, including a first reflection of the EC Winter Package.
