Mid-term Review of the EU Multi Financial Framework (MFF)

An Opportunity to Speed up the Energy Transition

100 percent electricity from renewable energy in Austria by 2030 and climate neutrality for the country by 2040 are both important and ambitious goals. The electricity industry is ready to take up these challenges. However, it is also important to create the right framework conditions for the energy transition. Because time is running out!

There has never been a more crucial time to ensure EU Funding Programmes are fit for purpose. The climate crisis, rising energy prices and the war in the Ukraine, in addition to the swift implementation of REpowerEU, must steer future funding topics and the EU-budget from hence on. Verband kommunaler Unternehmen Österreichs and Oesterreichs Energie have taken a close look at the EU programmes in order to highlight the priorities in relation to the action requirements of the electricity industry, provide feedback on specific EU programmes and identify future funding topics.
