European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) adopted the opinion on the Communication from the Commission on delivering the internal electricity market and making the most of public intervention in the form the Employers of Poland canvassed for.
At a plenary session on March 25th EESC adopted the opinion on delivering the internal electricity market and making the most of public intervention. Employers of Poland were working towards such a wording of the opinion which takes into account specific conditions of domestic markets and issues related to renewable energy sources (RES). This is linked mainly to subsidizing RES in Germany which makes German producers sell energy in neighbouring countries pushing the prices down.
The opinion was prepared for the European Commission, which tables bills and supervises adherence to EU regulations.
EESC is an advisory body that gives opinions on legislative changes proposed by EU institutions – such as the European Commission, Council of the European Union or the European Parliament. Participating in EESC sessions the Employers of Poland have influence on the decisions taken by the EU.
