The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

The Commission has launched 2 public consultations today on the revision of the Renewable Energy Directive and the Energy Efficiency Directive.   The objective of these 12 week consultations is to seek a wide range of views on to what extent and how these 2 directives should be revised. This will feed into the preparation of Commission proposals next year.
