Ahead of the trilogue meeting on the Electricity Market Regulation on 18 October 2018, 31 networks and organisations representing citizens from across Europe urge EU ministers to ensure that capacity mechanisms remain a last resort solution and that they no longer subsidise the burning of fossil fuels, coal in particular.
This open letter, signed by 101 organisations and sent today to EU ministers of European and Foreign Affairs ahead of the General Affairs Council meeting of 16 October, demands a dramatic improvement of climate action spending in the future EU budget.

It’s time for more transparency in the EU’s climate and energy planning and modelling
Dear President Juncker,
cc. First Vice-President Frans Timmermans,
Our organisations represent a broad spectrum of interests in the sustainable transition of the EU’s energy system. We have a common concern about the level of transparency and public participation in the development of pathways that are coherent with the long-term temperature goals of the Paris Agreement. In fact, stakeholder engagement in discussing the foundations, deciding on the modelling parameters and approaches for assessing the impacts of different pathways is crucial to ensure the right choices are made.
