Debriefing of the September plenary session

Greens/EFA priorities for the plenary week included the State of the European Union, the Renewable Energy Directive, the Directive on adequate Minimum Wages, Rule of law in Hungary, the Deforestation Regulation and Ska Keller stepping down as Greens/EFA President.

MEPs recognise Hungary no longer fully democratic

Members of the European Parliament have voted to support the findings of Greens/EFA MEP, Gwendoline Delbos-Corfield’s report into the “Existence of a clear risk of a serious breach by Hungary of the values on which the Union is founded”. The report states that Hungary has moved from being a democracy to a ‘hybrid regime of electoral autocracy’.

Combating the energy crisis with renewables & energy savings

Members of the European Parliament will vote on the European Parliament position on the revision of the Renewable Energy Directive and on the Energy Efficiency Directive. The Greens/EFA Group welcomes the call to increase the mandatory share of renewable energy in transport, heating, buildings and industry.

Stand with Ukraine: Let's stop fuelling war!

Europe's addiction to gas and oil from Russia funds Putin’s war in Ukraine. It's now more urgent than ever to make the EU energy independent!

We need a renovation revolution. Time to insulate homes, to save energy, and to accelerate our transition into renewable energy so we immediately reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.

We must end this energy dependency and accelerate to a 100% renewable economy.

By doing so, we help the people of Ukraine fight for their freedom.
