European citizens, businesses, industry leaders, civil society organisations- are uniting in a call for EU and National policymakers to commit to a higher ambition that will help alleviate the impact of the current energy price crisis through enhancing our energy security while also delivering our Paris climate commitments. Ahead of the trilogue negotiations starting this month, we are calling for higher EU binding targets in the Energy Efficiency (EED) and Renewable Energy (RED) Directives in order to rapidly improve energy savings and accelerate the deployment of renewable energy across Europe.
The joint open letter was sent to Czech Prime Minister Petr Fiala on 11th October, before the informal energy meeting in Prague, where we asked EU member states to increase their proposed energy targets for the Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy Directives. The letter was sent also to the media on 18th October and was published on social media to raise awareness of our call for a properly ambitious energy transition.
