It's crunch time for EU energy policy.

As negotiations on new laws governing our energy future until 2030 pick up speed, it's time to look at what this will mean for people and planet. In this briefing, we outline the way forward for an energy transition that would benefit all, moving away from fossil fuels, protecting workers' livelihoods, tackling energy poverty, and unleashing the potential of people-owned renewable projects. The only question is: will EU Member States choose this path?
