Energy Community Necessitates Reform to Meet its Goals, Concludes High Level Reflection Group

As the Energy Community High Level Reflection Group’s report “An Energy Community for the Future” was published today bringing to fruition the Group's nine months long work on necessary reform, the Group's Chairman Jerzy Buzek stated:

‘For almost ten years, the Energy Community has been a key tool to build a win-win situation by bringing closer together the EU and Western Balkans in the south, and Ukraine, Moldova and soon Georgia in the east. Today the Community is facing serious challenges and new tasks - and we are suggesting how to respond to them. The solutions we present in our Report mainly focus on the gap between political commitment and real law implementation, lack of investment in infrastructure and effectiveness of the institutional setup’.

The majority of the reforms can be adopted without amending the Treaty, sometimes requiring a simple decision of the Ministerial Council. A small number of recommendations require full Treaty revision.

Challenges for the European Energy Policy

On Tuesday April 1 Jerzy Buzek attended the 2nd European Energy Congress in Brussels, where he gave an overview of the challenges for the European energy policy from the EP perspective.
He recalled that while the EP may not have a unanimous opinion on energy policy, the differences do not prevent a constructive debate on the fundamental question: how to achieve affordable prices for consumers and how to move forward from the crisis, with a competitive economy?
