EU Commission European Parliament

 

Socialist and Green members of the European Parliament face defeat in their efforts to ringfence up to €5 billion of Juncker Plan investor risk guarantees for energy efficiency projects.

On 14 April, the Parliament's Industry, Research and Energy Committee will vote on the European Fund for Strategic Investments, the legislation implementing the Juncker Plan.

Five out of seven political groups, representing over 60 per cent of MEPs in the European Parliament, have shown they are against the European Commission’s proposal to withdraw environmental legislation from its 2015 Work Programme through group resolutions prepared earlier this week.
