Preparation of the Energy Council, 22 February 2013

The first Energy Council under the Irish Presidency will be held on 22nd February 2013 in Brussels. Energy Commissioner Günther H. Oettinger will represent the European Commission.

This will be followed by an exchange of views on the Europe 2020 strategy. Under AOB, the Presidency will inform on the state of play of negotiations with the Parliament on the proposal for a regulation on safety of offshore oil and gas prospection, exploration and production activities.

Proposal for a Directive amending Directive 98/70/EC relating to the quality of petrol and diesel fuels and amending Directive 2009/28/EC on the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources: Orientation debate

The Presidency proposed to steer the debate around the effectiveness of a Commission proposal to address the indirect land-use change emissions, to encourage the transition to advanced biofuels and to support the achievement of the existing EU energy and climate change objectives.

The Commission will underline the need for investment security in the energy sector, increased market integration of renewables and better coordination of national interventions into the electricity market at European level. The Commission will also urge member states and market players to allow consumers to benefit fully from liberalised and competitive energy markets.
