Public consultation on the Green Paper

The Green Paper on a European Strategy for Sustainable, Competitive and Secure Energy is a consultation document designed to stimulate ideas on what should be done to deal with practical challenges and problems. On the basis of the response to this Green Paper, the Commission would like to develop more concrete ideas on a number of energy issues. For any questions concerning the questionnaire please use the mailbox:  TREN ENERGY GP

The public consultation on the energy green paper lasted from 24 March 2006 until 24 September 2006. The consultation process was developed in parallel to the discussion with the other institutions and public events organised during this period.

The consultation process on the follow-up of the Green Paper and on the Strategic EU Energy Review included consultations with Member States, the European Council, the European Parliament, citizens, stakeholders, various stakeholder groups, and representatives of civil society such as labour market players, non-governmental organisations and consumer organisations. Discussions took place in various forums and web page was created on the Europa web site, including an open questionnaire and mail box for technical questions. This created a basis for the Commission to develop initiatives for the future European energy policy, including a 2007 Strategic EU Energy Review.
