Creation date: October 14, 2020

The Commission adopted today the 2020 State of the Energy Union report and its accompanying documents focused on different aspects of EU energy policy. This year's report is the first one since the adoption of the European Green Deal, and looks at the Energy Union's contribution to Europe's long-term climate goals.

It takes stock of the progress made in the five dimensions of the energy union - decarbonisation, including renewables, energy efficiency, the internal energy market, security of supply and research, innovation and competitiveness. The report provides guidance on the swift implementation of the national energy and climate plans (NECPs) and on how energy-related investment and reforms can boost the EU’s economic recovery.

This report is also accompanied by a wide range of reports and annexes, including progress reports on the internal energy market, energy prices and costs, energy efficiency and renewable energy.
