What 'Energy-Price-Growth'? - Bratislava Report CEEP
The current set of European policies on cohesion, energy and climate do not add up. Central European realities with regard to competitiveness, growth and social balance call for a clear commitment to stronger growth – and affordable energy to facilitate this. Investments into energy efficiency, renewable generation and upgrading of existing generation need to be implemented over time and supported by European funds to avoid that the industrial core of Central Europe looses its clout. Using existing EU funds is a starting point – however, more needs to be done to provide access to financing instruments, and to move a larger share of the EU budget into funds to support the modernisation of the energy system.
