Consumer-led energy transition: leveraging the actions of progressive energy consumers to deliver the EU energy system of the future

As the EU Commission prepares to release a review of the EU Renewable Energy Directive and Market Design Initiative in late November 2016, this RE100 report, prepared by E3G, calls on policy makers to ensure that measures are put in place that would give companies easier access to renewable power in Europe - providing greater control over energy costs and long-term business stability. Backed by BT, IKEA Group, Google, Nestlé, Royal DSM and Unilever, who all contributed their experiences of working towards 100% renewable power globally, the report argues for continued priority dispatch for renewables and enforceable prosumer rights. RE100 is led by The Climate Group in partnership with CDP.
