EU Energy and Environment Sub-Committee
Report published on 18 December 2015. Government Response published on 25 February 2016. Commission Response published on 2 March 2016. Report debated on Monday 13 June.
The House of Lords EU Committee published its report into EU energy governance and states that the EU-wide binding 2030 renewables targets will not be delivered unless it is backed-up by a monitoring and enforcement mechanism that acts as a guarantor for the agreement, and ensures that Member States share the effort equitably.
In the report, the Committee calls on the European Commission to ensure that proposals for a future energy governance framework include legal clarity, a respect for Member State sovereignty, a focus on security of supply, commitment to the consumer, real ambition for decarbonisation and increased regional co-operation.
