​Christian ILLEDITS
The Committee of the Regions (CoR) is drafting an opinion on the referral of the Greek Presidency on 'Affordable Energy for All'.
  • The affordability of energy and the related problem of 'energy poverty' are key issues in terms of their social impact, in the context of efforts to achieve the EU's goals in fighting climate change and making the European energy system more sustainable, and regarding the competitiveness of the EU at a global level. Local and regional authorities are directly concerned by this issue as energy producers, as energy consumers, and as the level of governance in charge of many aspects of consumer protection and support for local business.
The rapporteur on the opinion, Mr Christian ILLEDITS (AT/PES), Member of the Burgenland Parliament, together with his expert, Mr Johann BINDER, would be happy to meet with representatives of local and regional associations and other stakeholders for a consultation and an exchange of views on the relevant topic of this opinion. For this purpose, the CoR prepared some background information as well as a set of preliminary questions to guide the debate on 25 February.
The consultation will take place on:
Tuesday 25 February 2014 between 2.30 p.m. and 4.00 p.m.
in the Committee of the Regions building
(Rue Belliard 99-101, B-1040 Brussels)
Room JDE 70.
