EC presents first State of the Energy Union Report
On 18 November 2015, the European Commission (EC) presented the first State of the Energy Union Report. The report shows that while progress has already been made since the adoption of the Energy Union Framework Strategy 9 months ago, much still remains to be done. The report identifies key action areas for 2016 and provides policy conclusions at Member State, regional and European level.
The Energy Union Framework Strategy was adopted to create a new momentum to bring about the transition to a low-carbon, secure and competitive economy. Within the framework of the strategy, the Commission committed to report annually on the state of the Energy Union in order to address the key issues and steer the policy debate.
