Europex response to public consultation on the revision of the Energy Taxation Directive (ETD)

Brussels, 14 October 2020 | Europex supports a revision of the Energy Taxation Directive (ETD) in order to enable the transition towards climate neutrality. This is an important opportunity to ensure that energy taxation policy supports the objectives of the Internal Energy Market and ensure that consumers can benefit from incentives provided by price signals from the electricity and gas wholesale markets.

Against this backdrop, our response focuses on two aspects – the

Europex response to Revision of Regulation (EU) 347/2013 on guidelines for trans-European energy infrastructure (TEN-E Regulation)

Brussels, 13 July 2020 | Europex fully supports efforts to ensure trans-European energy infrastructure is fit-for purpose and consistent with the 2050 climate neutrality objective. The TEN-E Regulation and related CEF Energy funding has made important contributions towards improved connection levels of the Internal Energy Market, allowed energy to be traded across borders and increased security of supply. We believe the revised TEN-E Regulation should now reflect the needs of a rapidly evolving energy system, with a view to enabling the integration of higher shares of renewable energy, at a more decentralised level. Greater integration between the different energy sources
