Commission publishes the Climate and Energy Summer package

As part of the Energy Union strategy, today the Commission presents proposals to deliver a new deal for energy consumers, to launch a redesign of the European electricity market, to update energy efficiency labelling and to revise the EU Emissions Trading System (ETS). The package is an important step towards implementing the Energy Union strategy with a forward looking climate change policy, launched as one of the political priorities of the Juncker Commission in February 2015. Today’s proposals give prominence to the ‘energy efficiency first’ principle and put households and business consumers at the heart of the European energy market. The press release is available online. Please also see the fact sheet on ETS revision, fact sheet on single energy label and fact sheet on the new market design.
