REPowerEU: Commission establishes the EU Energy Platform Task Force to secure alternative supplies




The Commission has set up a new Task Force within its Directorate-General for Energy, to provide support to the EU Energy Platform and implement the REPowerEU goal of supply diversification. It will help deliver on the objective of reducing our dependence on Russian fossil fuels, by enabling member states and neighbouring countries to have access to alternative energy supplies at affordable prices in the coming years. Energy Commissioner Kadri Simson said: “In our REPowerEU Plan we outlined how Europe can get rid of Russian fossil fuels. Now we are giving ourselves the tools to make it happen. It is time to diversify our energy supplies and make best use of our infrastructure. The Energy Platform Task Force will contribute to Europe’s energy security and independence. Through the collective political and economic weight of the EU’s 27 member states and 440 million citizens, we will work to ensure affordable and secure energy imports.” The Energy Platform Task Force will start work next week, on 1 June, and immediately tackle the new tasks outlined in the REPowerEU Plan adopted on 18 May. A press release is available online.
