On 27 March 2013, the European Commission adopted a Green Paper on "A 2030 framework for climate and energy policies". This document launches a public consultation lasting until 2 July, allowing Member States, other EU institutions and stakeholders to express their views on the EU climate and energy policy in a 2030 perspective.
Developing a 2030 framework for EU climate and energy policies is necessary to provide certainty and reduced regulatory risk for investors and to mobilize the funding needed; to support progress towards a competitive economy and a secure energy system; and to establish the EU's 2030 ambition level for GHG reductions in view of a new international agreement on climate change foreseen for 2015.
The main conclusions of the conference will feed, together with the responses to the consultation, into the Commission's on-going preparations for more concrete proposals for the 2030 framework expected by the end of 2013.
