Hi all

For those still within the European Union, just when you thought it was safe to go outside ..

The European Commission is releasing an avalanche of energy and climate policy proposals mid‑next month on 14 July 2021.  For a taste, tune into this webinar on Tuesday 6 July 2021 by Berlin‑based Clean Energy Wire news service:

The CLEW article summarizes the the main areas involved as follows:

  • revision of the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS), including maritime, aviation and CORSIA as well as a proposal for ETS as own resource
  • Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) and a proposal for CBAM as own resource
  • Effort Sharing Regulation (ESR)
  • revision of the Energy Tax Directive
  • amendment to the Renewable Energy Directive to implement the ambition of the new 2030 climate target (RED)
  • amendment of the Energy Efficiency Directive to implement the ambition of the new 2030 climate target (EED)
  • reducing methane emissions in the energy sector
  • revision of the Regulation on the inclusion of greenhouse gas emissions and removals from land use, land use change and forestry (LULUCF)
  • revision of the Directive on deployment of alternative fuels infrastructure
  • revision of the Regulation setting CO₂ emission performance standards for new passenger cars and for new light commercial vehicles

with best wishes, Robbie
