EGEC and 36 European associations representing renewables and energy efficiency value chains sent a letter to the European leaders and decision-makers urging to link the European Green deal and the stimulus package in response to the COVID 19 pandemic.
The signatories call on the EU Commission to:
- Fully integrate the proposed economic stimulus packages and the European Green Deal. Investments in a zero-carbon infrastructure and innovative solutions are the best and most cost-effective route to economic recovery.
- Bring forward the necessary investments for rapid recovery.
- Use the stimulus packages to accelerate investments in energy efficiency, renewable heating and cooling, electricity, mobility, zero-carbon buildings, and industrial processes.
- Ensure ongoing supply of clean energy and ongoing investments in energy transition can continue in the current pandemic as essential services.
Geothermal energy is at the heart of a green recovery as we provide clean energy for buildings, cities, industry and transport.
