The informal video conference of energy ministers will take place today as part of the German EU Council Presidency under the leadership of Federal Economics Minister Peter Altmaier, in which EU Energy Commissioner Kadri Simson will also take part. On the basis of the evaluation of the National Energy and Climate Plan (NECP) of the EU member states published on September 17, 2020 and the impact assessment of the EU Commission for raising the EU climate target for 2030, the responsible EU – Exchange ministers about joint measures to achieve the EU energy targets for 2030. Federal Minister of Economics Altmaier: “The EU Commission’s Green Deal offers the unique opportunity to promote and reconcile climate protection and business together. The energy sector plays an important role in this, because it is of great importance both for achieving the energy and climate policy goals by 2030 and for the long-term goal of 2050. The evaluation of the national energy and climate plans by the EU Commission shows that we still need to intensify our joint efforts – both in terms of energy efficiency, but also in the expansion of renewable energies. So today we are discussing which European instruments we can make better use of or strengthen. It is also important to ensure a reliable energy supply and to further strengthen the competitiveness of our European economy. “
