EUFORES MEP-Briefing with incoming French EU Council Presidency

Category: news


EUFORES organised an online meeting with Members of the European Parliament and Bogdan Popescu, Energy Policy Advisor, French Permanent Representation to the European Union, for a discussion on about ‘The priorities of the French EU Council Presidency on Renewables and Energy Efficiency’.

The event, organised by EUFORES, took place online on 9 December 2021. From January 2022, the French Council Presidency will be advancing on the energy efficiency directive (EED) and the renewable energy directive (RED) in the context of the EU Green Deal. The French elections in April will have an impact in all of EU and have effect in the presidency.

In a tagline, the French EU Presidency program would be “Recovery, Strength and Sense of Belonging” playing a crucial role in finding the best consensus for policies which drive the EU to reach the new 2030 Climate Targets.
