EU Transport, Telecommunications and Energy Council (Energy) meets to discuss: 1- Ministers will seek a general approach on the gas and hydrogen package, which includes a proposal for a directive and a proposal for a regulation on common internal market rules for renewable and natural gases and hydrogen. 2- The proposals seek to facilitate the penetration of renewable and low-carbon gases into the energy system, enabling a shift away from natural gas and to allow for these new gases to play their role towards the goal of EU climate neutrality in 2050. 3- EU energy ministers will seek a political agreement on a proposal to extend a Council regulation on a voluntary reduction of natural gas demand by 15% ahead of winter. Under the proposal, the voluntary 15% gas demand reduction target would be maintained until March 2024. 4- Ministers will hold a first policy debate on a proposal to revise the EU electricity market design. The proposal aims to make the EU energy market more resilient and stable, to shield consumers and companies from short-term electricity price volatility, and to drive investments into renewable energies.
