On Tuesday 6th of February, during the EP Plenary session, the MEPs voted on the following topics: pesticides, CO2 emissions and clean energy innovation.
On Clean Energy Innovation it has been stated that citizens have to be a central part to promote the energy transition and engaging them in the change will need to be done through education. Further investment on research and development has to be devoted for financing low-emission energy projects and make them available for innovators. As said by Jerzy Buzek (EPP, PL), rapporteur ‘we need to simplify EU programmes and funds, so that researchers and investors can use them more efficiently. We need more national expenditure to be better coordinated in infrastructure, research, and structural funds; and we need to apply a technology-neutral approach.”
