The package covers legislation in the area of energy efficiency, renewables, governance, electricity market design and electricity security of supply rules, to enter into force in the next years.

Serbian Minister of Mining and Energy Zorana Mihajlovic, said that this energy package will boost the clean energy transition and modernize energy systems as well as economies. The new legislative acts will help the Energy Community to gradually transition away from fossil fuels and contribute to the achievement of a carbon neutral Europe by 2050. It’s important that cutting emissions does not result in cutting jobs and this package will help us achieve that by unlocking opportunities of the clean energy revolution.

The Council also adopted the Decarbonization Roadmap for the contracting parties of the Energy Community, a political document outlining the sequence of adoption, transposition and implementation of decarbonization-focused rules in order to put the contracting parties on a path towards achieving 2030 and mid-century decarbonization targets.
