EU Energy and Climate Policy after 2020


Ecologic Institute advised the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) on the post-2020 update of EU climate and energy policy, analysing the climate, political, legal, financial and economic impacts of proposed options and developing recommendations for action. These include the thematic design of the emissions trading system after 2020, targets and instruments in the field of renewable energies and energy efficiency, as well as a redesign of the Effort-Sharing Decision.

Within the project, a comprehensive report and a series of short studies and scientific analyses on climate-relevant topics were prepared. The aim of these analyses is to underpin the discussion within the ministry in the above-mentioned area. Additionally, interdisciplinary workshops were conducted assessing the proposals of the future EU climate and energy package to be negotiated.

The final report of the project is available for download.
