11:00 - 19:00
At the end of 2016 two proposals concerning the Energy Union will be presented by the European Commission: the European renewable energy directive will be revised, and there will be a proposal on the new energy market design.
The renewable energy directive will contain provisions on the governance in the field of renewable energy targets for the different Member States. Furthermore there could / should be provisions benefiting community energy and priority access to the grid.
The proposal on the new energy market design will touch upon the electricity market and the gas market. Concerning the electricity market, the European Commission (and the conservative rapporteur for the own-initiative report in the European Parliament) is planning to deepen the single market for electricity, enhance the cross-border-trade, make cross-border capacity markets possible and abolish regulated prices.
