The parliamentary committee of the European Parliament supports censoring the sun tax

The European Parliament's Committee on Industry and Energy (PE) today approved the parliamentary report on renewable energy, which reinforces the right of citizens to self-consumption energy proposed by the European Commission and calls for raising the rate of renewable energy in the European Union (EU) by 2030 from 27% to 35%.

Brussels, Nov 28 (EFE) .- The European Parliament's Committee on Industry and Energy (PE) today approved the parliamentary report on renewable energies, which reinforces the right of citizens to the energy self-consumption proposed by the European Commission and calls for raising the rate of renewable energy in the European Union (EU) in 2030 from 27 to 35%.

The report on the Directive concerning the promotion of the use of energy from renewable sources, prepared by the Spanish Socialist José Blanco, was approved by 43 votes in favor, 14 against and 7 abstentions in the aforementioned commission.

"Europe needs to do more, Europe needs more ambition in renewables to fulfill the Paris commitments, combat climate change and lead the energy transition, "said the Spanish MEP in a statement after the vote.

The approved text should be endorsed next January by the plenary of the EP, which will set thus its position in the future negotiation with the European Council, which represents the countries of the community club, and with the European Commission (EC), executive arm of the EU.

The proposal The original EC proposal, submitted a year ago, called for a minimum renewable energy consumption of 27% in 2030 in the EU as a whole, a rate that according to Brussels would be sufficient to to comply with the European commitments of the Paris Agreement to reduce polluting emissions by 40% over the next decade.

Another of the highlights approved by the The same committee is the right to energy self-consumption, as already reflected in the initial proposal of the EC, which requested not only that it not be taxed but also encouraged.

"Self-consumption is protected as a right, the sun tax is prohibited, "Blanco said through his Twitter account on that point of the text, which prohibits subjecting any type of tax to self-consumption at all times. that the generated electricity remains outside the network and does not suppose the first source of the home.

In particular, the text approved in parliamentary commission introduces a nuance regarding the EC proposal: it does not only apply to a "consumer", but also applies to a "consumer group".

On the other hand, and regarding the energy efficiency directive -Approved in the European Parliament by 33 votes in favor, 30 against and 2 abstentions-, the MEPs also advocated asking the EU to improve its energy efficiency in a 40% by 2030, against the target of 30% retained by the Commission for the EU as a whole.

From the group of the Greens of the EP, the Spanish Florent Marcellesi (EQUO), member of the Parliamentary Committee on Industry and Energy, regretted that no binding renewable energy targets have been set for each Member State, but only for the EU as a whole.

"El The goal of 35% renewable energy by 2030 can not be considered a maximum, but a minimum, because it falls short of complying with the Paris agreement, "Marcellesi said. statement.

On the other hand, the environmental organization Transport & Environment and the humanitarian Oxfam, criticized that the approved text mentions that the Member States should guarantee a minimum of 12% of renewable energy in transport in 2030 and that biofuels should be included in this calculation.

According to these organizations, biofuels increase pollutant emissions responsible for global warming and contribute to deforestation.
