Joint statement: Our recommendations on the proposal for a Net-Zero Industry Act

On 16 March, the European Commission published a proposal for Regulation on a Net-Zero Industry Act (NZIA), a key tenant of the Green Deal Industrial Plan. While we welcome the push to increase the Union’s competitiveness by moving forward the clean energy transition, we, E.DSO, Europacable, and T&D Europe, would like to share the following recommendations:

1. Ensuring all enabling technologies from transmission to distribution are represented as ‘grid technologies’ under the strategic net-zero technologies

2. Reaching the Union’s annual deployment needs for grid technologies can only be achieved with future-planning investments

3. Clarify how the Act will enable investment to meet the EU’s ambitious target of manufacturing grid technologies domestically
