Energy Union must fit with Europe’s industrial ambitions

Today the European Commission published its communication on the Energy Union. BUSINESSEUROPE Director General Markus J. Beyrer commented: ‘European business supports the European Commission’s commitment to revitalise energy policy and to strengthen EU’s ability to act in this field. The proposed holistic approach is a good foundation to balance EU’s energy, climate and industrial challenges better than in the past”. But important trade-offs will have to be addressed in implementation of the strategy. We will be vigilant on future decisions. What we expect is concrete action on the challenge of high energy prices, which is undermining the competitiveness of our industry.”
