In its Energy Union Framework Strategy, the Commission announced a new renewable energy package for the period after 2020,to include a new renewable energy directive (REDII) for the period 2020-2030 and an updated EU bioenergy sustainability policy. This consultation covers the REDII aspects. The bioenergy sustainability policy will be covered by a separate public consultation.
The results of this consultation, together with the results of the separate public consultation launched by the Commission in July 2015 concerning market design (available at https://ec.europa.eu/energy/en/news/redesigning-europes-electricity-market-%E2%80%93-give-your-feedback), will inform the impact assessment for REDII.
