Today, the European Commission publishes its third report on the state of the energy union. It provides an overview of the results achieved and look forward to the coming year. Along with the general report published today also 28 country files.
The report also confirms that no energy can be achieved if the infrastructure is not adapted to the needs of the future energy system. The infrastructure for energy, transport and telecommunications are becoming increasingly intertwined. Local networks will become increasingly important in the daily lives of European citizens, which is becoming more will switch to electric mobility, decentralized energy production and demand response.
Although significant progress has been made, problems persist, particularly in the field of electricity. To address this problem, the Commission today adopted a Communication on the target of 15% electricity interconnection 2030. She adopted the third list of projects of common interest.
Following the report said Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič, verantwo orderly for energy union Energy Union can only be successful if we all follow the same course, the goal is to fulfill our promise to complete the energy union by the end. of the Commission’s current mandate. by 2019 the energy union should not policy anymore, but a daily reality that every European citizen to reap the benefits. This requires more commitment needed from all walks of life. Therefore, I consider next year the year of action. “

Miguel Arias Cañete, Commissioner for Climate Action and Energy: “The energy transition in Europe is on track: the share of renewable energy reached record highs and rapidly declining costs, but the European energy infrastructure must evolve in the same direction and at the same pace this. energy full support.

Therefore, we propose to focus the new list of projects on major electricity interconnections and smart networks. the measures taken today to improve the infrastructure for clean energy, is another important step towards a sustainable, competitive and secure energy – with a real European added value “.
