Achieving an energy union will ensure that Europe has secure, affordable and sustainable energy. More sensible energy use and production, and fighting climate change, can create jobs and spur economic growth.
Climate change mitigation and adaptation receives significant support from ESI funds amounting to more than €114 billion.
ESI funds will not only contribute to energy union objectives and help EU countries achieve the EU’s climate and energy targets; they will also benefit regional and rural development, competitiveness, jobs and growth, biodiversity, and soil and water concerns, while tackling energy poverty and enhancing energy security.
