The Energy Union communication, which was presented in February by the European Commission and its subsequent strong endorsement by European heads of state, resonated well with European citizens and businesses. It promises a commitment from the European Commission to drive a fundamental transformation, from an economy driven by fossil fuels to a sustainable, climate friendly and inclusive economy for citizens and competitive businesses.
The importance of demand-side flexibility and the ‘efficiency first’ principle in this effort cannot be underestimated. The signatories of this letter give their full support to the European Commission and will at the same time pay close attention to the work of the European Commission in delivering its promise.
