Community energy campaigners demand safeguards to guarantee a just energy transition.
The coalition writes that the proposal risks undermining climate targets as well as delegitimizing the green agenda and transition. If the complementary Delegated Act is adopted, then a great deal of the responsibility for further expansion of fossil gas or nuclear investments that will operate competitively against renewables as ‘green energy’, will lie with the EU institutions and member states.
Time is critical in the battle against climate crisis. We cannot afford to lose time or undermine current efforts by sending contradictory messages to citizens and the private sector. EU institutions should stand for a successful and reliable EU Green Deal and should work for a sustainable future for all.
