Ibec submission - Energy and Environment Aid Guidelines
The submission recognises that Energy and Environment State aid guidelines will provide clarity and facilitate a holistic view of climate and energy policies across the EU. However, it asks that these guidelines avoid being overly prescriptive and instead encourage Member States to strongly adhere to the Guidelines as indicative parameters that should be followed when possible. Unique national energy mixes will require varied policy responses, such as market interventions to support generation adequacy and renewable technologies – as well as exemptions for certain categories of users to offset the cost of policies when necessary.
