The EU Strategy for Energy System Integration was recently presented by EU Commissioner for the European Green Deal Frans Timmermans and EU Commissioner for Energy Kadri Simson, aiming to link different energy carriers, infrastructure and consumption sectors together to boost renewables and reduce carbon emissions. We are glad to see a more circular energy system putting energy efficiency at its core as pillar.
Though, as the Just Transition Fund was moved to the Parliament for voting, we join many experts to raise the Commission and Parliament’s attention to remain careful and not let fossil fuels such as natural gas appear or be supported in such programmes and strategies, otherwise sending wrong signals and locking the EU into fossil technologies for the next decade(s).
The energy system integration strategy does not contain legislative proposals, they will come in a year: the EU can deliver on its climate ambition without compromising and putting efficiency first as top priority is key.
We will keep on providing research that feeds into a thorough decarbonisation and delivering of the Paris Agreement.
