E.DSO policy brief on REPowerEU

On 8 March 2022, in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, the European Commission published REPowerEU, aiming to reduce EU demand for Russian gas by two-thirds before the end of the year and eliminate dependence on Russian gas well before 2030. By implementing the measures outlined in the plan, the Commission aims to address the soaring energy prices as well as the threat to security of energy supply. The plan to reduce dependence includes both additional guidance on emergency measures as well as action for more affordable, secure, and sustainable energy.

E.DSO welcomes the REPowerEU plan and undoubtedly supports the Commission’s efforts to ensure a coordinated European response to the Ukrainian crisis and the ongoing energy price crisis.
