On 30 November 2016, the European Commission presented a set of regulations referred to as the Winter Package, aimed at maintaining the EU competitiveness in the era of energy markets’ transformation towards clean energy. The document contains 1000 pages of legislative proposals which cover the issues of energy efficiency, renewable energy, electricity market structure, security of energy supplies and energy management policies for the needs of the energy union. The Commission also proposes a package of measures to accelerate clean energy innovations and activities related to renovation of buildings, and points at measures to encourage investments and mitigate the social effects of the transition to clean energy.
