EU Parliament defines Energy Community as integral part of the Energy Union and pivotal arm of EU’s external energy policy, 16 Dec 2015

In a resolution adopted on 15 December, the European Parliament invites the Commission to come forward with concrete proposals based on the Report of the High Level Reflection Group to further reform the Energy Community in order to establish a true pan-European Energy Community. The focus should be better governance and enhancement of Energy Community institutions, including the establishment of an Energy Community Parliamentary Assembly.

The resolution titled “Towards a European Energy Union” calls on the Commission, the Secretariat, the EU Member States and Contracting Parties to, among others, strengthen the Energy Community’s activities through better implementation and enforcement of EU law and concentrate their efforts on implementing key infrastructure projects in order to establish the free flow of energy across EU and Energy Community countries and improve security of energy supply.
