About the Working Group
The Working Group Competitiveness was created in 2012, following the Commission proposal on the Energy Taxation Directive (2003/96/EC) revision. The WG’s main objective is to contribute to a supportive business environment for our members to thrive in by formulating and disseminating Bioenergy Europe’s common positions on EU competitiveness related legislations. Key items in this policy area include: Energy Taxation (possible Directive revision); Guidelines on State Aid for Environmental Protection and Energy and EU Industrial Policy strategy. The WG is open to all Bioenergy Europe's members interested in these subjects and willing to input the sector’s position on competitiveness. Giulia Cancian coordinates this WG.
