Advancing practical policies to drive cost-effective decarbonization of the European energy sector
Europe’s energy system is as diverse as its culture, with broad differences across the continent in the way electricity is produced, transmitted, sold, and consumed. The EU’s Energy Union envisions a more integrated, secure, affordable, and climate-friendly power sector for all EU Member States and neighboring states, but the political and technical challenges are substantial.
RAP’s international team of experts includes former U.S. and European officials and utility managers who understand these challenges and the heavy lifting it will take to overcome them. Our team develops holistic policies in partnership with EU and Member State policymakers, NGOs, and industry experts. Tools and complementary policies developed by RAP, in collaboration with our partners, are unleashing the power of larger, well-designed markets, driving investment in large-scale deployment of low-carbon supply, storage, demand-side resources, and needed infrastructure.
At the EU level, our team advises the European Commission, Parliament, regulatory authorities, and NGOs on the Internal Energy Market, "Efficiency First," and complementary policies for both the energy sector and climate and environmental regulation. We also help individual Member States, including Germany, Poland, and the U.K., to develop sustainable, effective tools to meet their power sector challenges.
