We, the Alliance of Energy Intensive Industries representing more than 30,000 companies that are Europe’s largest energy consumers and together, directly employ more than 2.8 Million people, want to make a success of the Energy Union. We see it as a potential enabler of European industry’s competitiveness and a unique opportunity to deliver on Europe’s ambitious transition to a low-carbon energy system. Energy Intensive Industries make a series of recommendations to reach this ambition in an effective, secure and cost-conscious way that delivers value for investment to European economic contributors such as industry.The Alliance would welcome a new energy
framework that:


  • Enables innovation in industry sectors that develop products and technologies
  • Puts the global competitiveness dimension high
  • Secures industry’s access to competitive, reliable, and sustainable energy
  • Avoids costly and unnecessary overlapping legislation
  • Clearly differentiates energy efficiency and reductions in industrial activity
  • Integrates renewable energy sources in a cost-efficient manner
