Extracts from the statement by José Manuel Barroso, on Energy and Climate change Package, at the EP Plenary session
In January 2007 the European Commission put forward an integrated energy/climate change proposal that addressed the issues of energy supply, climate change and industrial development. Two months later, European Heads of State endorsed the plan and agreed to an Energy Policy for Europe.
José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, presented this proposal to the European Parliament in Brussels. SHOTLIST
