About the #MakePowerClean campaign
This campaign brings together companies and associations focused on ensuring that Europe’s future power market is consistent with the EU climate commitments and will provide cleaner energy for all.
At a time when key EU legislation is being reviewed, we urge policy makers to ensure that only plants generating cleaner power receive public support in the form of capacity mechanisms.
Today, even highly polluting power plants benefit from capacity mechanisms.
We want to make sure that only cleaner alternatives are eligible.
This would ensure cleaner power supplies for all Europeans, helping to deliver EU’s COP21 commitments.
We therefore call on the European Parliament and on Member States to act responsibly and endorse the proposal to limit access to capacity mechanisms to plants emitting 550g CO2/kWh or less as a way of ensuring a cleaner power supply for all Europeans.
We need to make Europe’s electricity market fully consistent with the EU’s climate strategy
Ahead of the informal Energy Council in Tallinn, we wrote to EU Energy Ministers to stress the importance of delivering a consistent policy signal in the framework of the reform of the electricity market, with a view to making its design coherent with Europe’s climate commitments.
