GasNaturally shares its views on EU 2030 Framework with Heads of State ahead of European Council

17 March 2014

In view of the upcoming discussion on the 2030 Energy and Climate Framework at the European Council meeting, GasNaturally has conveyed its views on the file in an open letter to EU Heads of State and European Council President Herman Van Rompuy.

The letter calls upon the Heads of State to support a single legally-binding 2030 greenhouse gas emissions reduction target and to keep the existing Emissions Trading System (ETS) the central EU mechanism for cost-effective CO2 emissions reductions. GasNaturally finally urges the recipients of the letter to redesign the European power system to allow gas and renewables to better partner in electricity generation, helping the completion of the Internal Energy Market.

GasNaturally strongly believes that with these three proposals, the EU can achieve the goals of its medium- and long-term energy and climate policy.
