How have political parties and MEPs performed on climate and energy? CAN Europe has developed a simple overview of how MEPs, from the current parliamentary term 2009-2014, have voted on ten issues related to climate change and energy. This analysis has been compiled into scorecards that rate national political parties and European political groups based on the voting behavior of their respective MEPs. The scorecards illustrate broadly the positions of national political parties on climate and energy and how they relate to European decision-making. The scorecard summary also outlines how countries fare overall.

CAN Europe is not affiliated with and does not endorse any political party. The MEP and party analyses presented in the scorecards are based solely on statistical data.

  • Submission - CAN EUROPE’S COMMENTS ON ENTSOS’ INTERLINKED MODEL

  • Coal is out. Are the Western Balkans in?

    Are EU member-states in Southeast Europe ready for timely and just transition beyond coal? For the Western Balkans, membership hopefuls, the question is how much longer can public subsidies and Chinese loans keep coal zombie alive at growing cost to health, livelihoods, and the environment?
  • Submission - Feedback on ENTSOS' Proposals for TYNDP 2022 Storylines

    Future energy infrastructure planning in Europe needs to be fully aligned with the Paris Agreement. CAN Europe recommends to increase variation of TYNDP 2022 storylines by assessing higher ambition of greenhouse gas emission reductions. In order to reach the 1.5°C target of the Paris Agreement, a trajectory towards net-zero emissions in 2040 should be assessed. Instead of primarily opposing “decentralised” and “global” solutions in the TYNDP 2022 storylines, at least one scenario should analyse how to prepare European energy infrastructure for a 100% renewable energy system in the most efficient way, combining the best out of both “decentralised” and “global” futures.
