Commission invites interested parties to provide comments on proposed draft Climate, Energy and Environmental state aid guidelines
The evaluation revealed that the current provisions of the Guidelines work well, they are overall fit for purpose and are an effective tool when it comes to supporting the achievement of the EU’s environmental goals and climate targets, while limiting undue distortions in the Single Market. At the same time, the evaluation showed that some targeted adjustments, including simplifying and updating certain provisions and extending the scope of the Guidelines to cover new areas such as clean mobility and decarbonisation may be needed and that the current rules may need to be aligned with the Commission’s strategic priorities, in particular those of European Green Deal, and with other recent regulatory changes in the energy and environmental areas. In this context, the Commission is proposing a number of changes to the current rules. The draft Guidelines and all other information about the public consultation, including more details about the proposed changes, are available online.
