Following a Communication from the European Commission (EC) last November, assessing the state of play of the internal energy market, to be completed by 2014, the European Parliament’s Committee on Industry, Research and Energy (INTRE) will vote on its own report in May. The EC’s document highlights the benefits of a truly integrated European market for citizens and business.
