    Goals / Remit

    To achieve a well-functioning retail energy market, new suppliers and service providers must be able to enter into and compete in the market on equal terms. The competition and innovation that new entrants bring to the market are key to empower consumers and deliver a cost-efficient energy transition.

    EER's Key Principles are:
    - Effective competition at national and EU level is key to guarantee a well functioning energy market and benefit consumers.
    - The energy sector must be compliant with decarbonization goals.
    - European integration of energy markets must be completed.
    - Network tarifs should set the right incentives to choose the most efficient solutions for the energy system.
    Active customers are key to fulfill all EER principles.

    - Reform of the Electricity Market Design (Electricity Directive & Regulation)

    The list below only covers meetings held since November 2014 with commissioners, their cabinet members or directors-general at the European Commission; other lobby meetings with lower-level staff may have taken place, but the European Commission doesn't proactively publish information about these meetings. For more information about which commissioner is responsible for which portfolio, check out this link: https://commissioners.ec.europa.eu/index_en All information below comes from European Commission web pages.

    1 July 2024: We have noted that some meetings are appearing in duplicate, ie. some meetings seem to be listed twice. This seems to be because the Commission changes some element of a meeting data after the meeting has first been listed, which causes LobbyFacts to register it as a new meeting. We are investigating further.
