Policy Brief

This Briefing Paper by Sharon Turner, Quentin Genard, Josh Robers and Imke Luebbeke reacts to the various visions of European energy and climate policies after 2020 that were presented by the European Commission and EU Member States until mid-2015.

The paper's four key messages consider the importance of a credible governance framework, the reinforcement of the 2020 acquis, the alignment of the European Union with the European Commission’s core principles of ‘good governance’, as well as the need for institutional and procedural innovation.
