Tackling tomorrow’s challenges now

Orgalime comments the Energy Roadmap 2050 from multiple perspectives: The industry is the key enabling industries of an energy efficient European society throughout all areas and market segments, be them professional or private. At the same time the industry is a major energy using industry and most of its sectors are being deemed exposed to a significant risk of carbon leakage, hence, energy costs impact the global competitiveness of the sector. Finally, our industries are the “only” target of the Ecodesign and related Energy Labelling Directives and their implementation on some 42 different product groups.

Orgalime warmly welcomes the Energy Roadmap: It launches an urgently needed thorough discussion on the modernisation of Europe’s current energy supply and seeks to develop a long term European technology neutral framework in which European and national policies should become more effective, with a view to providing greater predictability and certainty for investment, growth and jobs in Europe and overall welfare for its people in a modern society.

We are convinced that Europe’s future energy supply is the basis for shaping our future: closing the gap in European-wide harmonisation with ambition while realism to not hamper the competitiveness of European industries on a global scale and its growth in the internal market is the common responsibility, and we believe, also the common interest.
