Se ha publicado en la web de la Comisión Europea el informe “State of The Energy Union”.
Les dejamos algunas observaciones al respecto:
Several Energy Union deliverables and reports are adopted and published alongside the State of the Energy Union:
- Energy efficiency progress report: The report on progress in implementing the 2020 energy efficiency target of 20% by 2020 shows that despite significant progress made, collective efforts of Member States correspond to only 17.6% primary energy savings, compared to projections for 2020. However, the Commission remains optimistic that the 20% target will be achieved, provided that existing EU legislation is fully implemented, efforts are accelerated, ambition level increased and the investment conditions improved.
- Climate action progress report: The report shows that the EU has been particularly successful in decoupling economic growth and greenhouse gas emissions. The EU is also on track to meet both the 2020 emissions reduction target of 20%, as well as the Kyoto Protocol targets. However, further measures are needed to meet the 2030 target.
- Energy Consumer Trends: The Staff Working Document illustrates that electricity and gas markets are still not performing as they should despite progress made.
- Report on the implementation of the EU Energy Security Strategy: This report provides an update on where the European Union stands with regard to energy security and which measures have been taken to improve it since the adoption of the Strategy in May 2014.
- The 2nd list of Projects of Common Interest sets out the infrastructure projects which are urgently needed to meet our energy policy targets and objectives. For more details see the separate press release (IP/15/6107).
- Report on the implementation of the Nuclear Safety Directive: The report concludes that there is, in general, a good level of compliance with the 2009 Nuclear Safety Directive.
- Oil Stocks Summary: The Oil Stocks Directive requires the Commission to report regularly on the available oil stocks in the Member States. The Staff Working Document delivers on this obligation and provides an update on the oil stocked in the EU.
- A proposal for a regulation on electricity and natural gas price statistics which will – once adopted – improve European statistics on energy prices.
- The Commission is also launching its public consultation on the future revision of the renewable energy directive, which will run until 10 February.
