Position Paper on Renewable Energy Directive II

Posted on 08/06/2017 in Position Paper

FuelsEurope welcomes the Commission’s proposal on the Renewable Energy Directive II (RED II) as the policy instrument to promote the use of renewable energy in the electricity, heating & cooling and the transport sector and recognises that the deployment of renewable energy is one of the main measures to tackle security of supply and climate change.FuelsEurope considers that transport can play an important role in achieving the EU-wide renewable energy target of at least 27% renewables in 2030. Homogeneous policy across the EU will be key in creating conditions that remain predictable and stable over the long term and that prevent fragmentation of the EU single energy market.
