The Week Ahead 30th January – 3rd February 2017

take a look at the upcoming agenda for the ECR group.


The parliament will discuss progress that has been made in implementing the ‘Energy Union’, which seeks to work towards completion of a single market in energy to reduce costs for consumers, and promote greater energy security. ECR MEP prof. Zdzislaw Krasnodębski is leading through parliament one part of the package, which will see EU states share information on energy agreements they reach with non-EU countries, to help prevent these contracts from threatening the EU’s overall energy security. MEPs will also shortly begin working through the Commission’s ‘Clean Energy Package’ which was proposed last year. http://ecrgroup.eu/the-european-commission-will-have-an-insight-into-intergovernmental-energy-agreements/

ECR MEPs support the development of liberalised markets and believe that competition will drive down energy prices, benefiting households and also European industry, particularly those sectors exposed to carbon leakage. We stress the importance of diversifying our energy system and making it more flexible, and we believe the EU and its Member States should have a greater focus on harnessing our own indigenous energy sources, be it is shale gas or offshore wind.

Debate: Wednesday @ 15.00
