  • “Long live Europe” : it’s time for Europe !

    “The crisis we have to tackle is enormous. But it is also huge opportunity for Europe. And it is a huge responsibility for us to do the right in this defining moment. We can now lay the cornerstone for a Union which is climate neutral, digital and more resilient than ever before. Seventy years ago our founding fathers and mothers took the first courageous step to create a Union of peace and prosperity. Today is the time to write our generation’s chapter to the story and take another courageous step towards a stronger Union. We owe it to future generations. Long live Europe” ! Given the health context, the European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen whom proposed a €750 billion recovery plan on 27 May in front of an unusually sparse European Parliament did not have the opportunity to arouse the enthusiasm of MEPs. Never mind, as the initial objective was quite different : bringing the European Union out of the torpor in which it confined itself more than two months ago and thus take a further step towards the creation of the “de facto solidarity” so beloved of Schuman. UFE takes stock of the proposals presented and the aftermath that could result for the power sector.

  • Brexit : l’amour dure 47 ans

    Le 23 juin 2016, David Cameron, alors Premier ministre britannique, organisait un référendum dont le résultat acta la volonté du Royaume-Uni de sortir de l’Union européenne (UE). Il aura néanmoins fallu attendre un peu plus de trois ans et demi – plus exactement 1317 jours – pour que ce qui s’avèrera être bien plus qu’un simple pari politique perdu, se concrétise enfin. Pour autant, bien que le Brexit soit juridiquement devenu effectif le 31 janvier à 00h00 heure française, le feuilleton n’a pas encore trouvé son épilogue puisque subsiste l’épineuse question des relations futures entre les deux parties. L’UFE fait le point sur les discussions en cours et les conséquences qui pourraient en découler pour le secteur électrique.

  • BREXIT : LOVE LAST 47 YEARS

    On 23 June 2016, David Cameron, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, held a referendum resulting in the departure of the UK from the European Union. However, it took over three and a half years – 1317 days to be more precise – for what turned out to be much more than a lost political bet, to finally materialise. Nevertheless, although Brexit became legally effective on 31 January, the soap opera had not yet found its epilogue as the thorny question of the future relations between the two parties remains. UFE takes stock of the current discussions and the aftermaths that could arise for the power sector.

  • 2020 – Année cruciale pour redéfinir la stratégie climatique de l’Europe

    2020 sera une année chargée pour les acteurs du système énergétique européen. La Communication « Green Deal » de la Commission européenne, dont l’objectif est de transformer l’industrie européenne pour parvenir à une Europe climatiquement neutre d’ici à 2050, a été publiée juste avant la pause hivernale. Mais les détails pour y parvenir sont encore à définir. La Commission proposera dès mars 2020 une « loi climat » pour transformer l’engagement politique de neutralité carbone à l’horizon 2050, en texte législatif contraignant. Puis, en octobre 2020, un plan global établissant un nouvel objectif pour 2030 compris entre un minimum de 50% de réduction des gaz à effet de serre et un objectif de 55% sera proposé.

  • 2020 – Année cruciale pour redéfinir la stratégie climatique de l’Europe

    2020 will indubitably be a busy year for the European energy system’s stakeholders. The Green Deal communication from the European Commission aims to transform the European industry to achieve climate neutrality in Europe by 2050 and was published just before the winter break. However, the concrete details on how to achieve such an ambition are still to be defined. In March 2020, the EC will propose a “climate law” to translate the political commitment to carbon neutrality by 2050 into binding legislation. Then, in October 2020, a global plan setting a new target for 2030 between at least a 50 % and up to a 55 % reduction of GHG will be proposed.

  • How to finance carbon neutrality by 2045 ? : Eurelectric’s answer

    On 26 September, Eurelectric, the sector association which represents the common interests of the electricity industry at pan-European level, gathered more than 130 stakeholders to present, alongside experts in energy and climate issues, economists and projects promotors, its E-invest report. It took more than a year to finalise this report that aims to establish a diagnostic regarding the existing regulatory framework in order to evaluate the power sector’s ability to trigger the necessary investments to reach carbon neutrality by 2045.

  • D-6 before the European elections !

    On May 26th, French people will be called upon to vote and elect their new Members of the European Parliament. While the abstention rate is often much higher in comparison with national elections, these elections are nevertheless fundamental. On one hand, in face of climate emergency, new MEPs will have a decisive role to play in meeting citizens’ high hopes and making the fight to tackle climate change a priority in Europe. On the other hand, behind the elections lies the challenge of the political personalities and nationalities who will occupy strategic positions and will therefore influence the direction the EU will take over the next five years. A few days before the elections, UFE takes a look of what is at stake in these elections.
