Response to the consultation "A 2030 framework for climate and energy policies" | 22.06.13

This response to the consultation on the green paper "A 2030 framework for climate and energy policies" is made by the European Academies Science Advisory Council (EASAC), the body established by the national science academies of the EU member states, together with Norway and Switzerland, in 2001 to provide independent advice on the science underpinning key European policy issues. It has been drafted by the Steering Panel of EASAC's Energy Programme.

In establishing the 2030 framework there needs to be greater clarity than hitherto in the goals of EU energy policy, the means to reach them and the pathways that should be followed. The cornerstone of policy formulation should be systematic and independent analysis of the options. Such analysis needs to be transparent and available to stakeholders.
