Sonja van Renssen is joined by Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President of the European Commission, to discuss the energy efficiency package as a part of the Energy Union.
Commissioner Šefčovič outlines that energy efficiency is a priority for the European citizens. Effective legislation in energy efficiency can also tackle energy poverty in terms of lowering prices and the greenhouse gas emissions. He hopes that with the interest of the private sector Europe can start an energy efficiency wave.
Commissioner Šefčovič concludes that the EU is aiming to integrate the Energy Efficiency package in all parts of legislative proposals.
