New rules for making the EU’s electricity market work better have been provisionally agreed by negotiators from the Council, the European Parliament and the European Commission.
The Presidency of the Council and representatives of the European Parliament today reached a provisional agreement on a directive and a regulation on electricity. The two files set out the future functioning of the EU’s electricity market and are cornerstones of the clean energy package. The agreement still has to be endorsed by the Council and the European Parliament.
The Presidency of the Council and the European Parliament today reached a provisional agreement on the revised regulation establishing the Agency for the Cooperation of Energy Regulators (ACER). The deal still needs to be endorsed by member states.
Today’s deal means that six out of the eight legislative proposals of the 2016 Clean Energy for All Europeans package have been politically endorsed by the co-legislators, after the agreements on the Governance of the Energy Union proposal, the revised Energy Efficiency Directive, the revised Renewable Energy Directive, the Energy Performance in Buildings Directive and the Regulation on Risk Preparedness. It is clear progress and momentum towards completing the Energy Union and combatting climate change are well under way. The Juncker Commission, working under its political priority “a resilient Energy Union and a forward-looking climate change policy”, is delivering.
