The energy aspects of the “Fit for 55 package” have been discussed during a public hearing organised by the European Parliament Committee on Industry, Research and Energy (ITRE) on 9 November.
Members of the ITRE Committee exchanged views on this topic with experts from academia, industry, and NGOs, who called for a more ambitious Fit for 55 package. The focus was on the revision of the Energy Efficiency Directive and the Renewable Energy Directive.
The recording of the public hearing is available here.
As a reminder, the Fit for 55 package is an initiative expected to provide the EU with tools to meet the Green Deal’s objectives, comply with the European Climate Law, and keep its Paris Agreement commitments launched by the European Commission in July 2021.
