E.ON Points of View
Towards a genuine single energy market via the European energy turnaround
The EU's influence will grow further. The aim is for the EU to become a world leader in renewables. Mike Winkel is convinced that it is a good point in time to let the German concept of an energy turnaround (Energiewende) be exported after all, in the shape of a European energy turnaround.
Does Europe need a new energy and climate strategy?
One of the paramount tasks for the new European Parliament and the European Commission is, in Johannes Teyssen's view, that of swiftly submitting to the Member States a consistent and realistic energy concept for 2030 so that the sector again becomes attractive to investments.
Capacity mechanisms – acting now for secure supplies tomorrow
Leo Birnbaum welcomes the development of capacity mechanisms, because they help the requisite conventional plants to cover their costs by providing compensation for capacity that is kept available.
A genuine energy turnaround must ensure security for investments and employment
Mike Winkel and Eberhard Schomburg plead for a stable European framework for a market-based energy policy in order to secure investments as well as employment in the energy industry.
