Read our position papers, our studies, our statements and policy papers


Position papers include all papers formally adopted by our Group and thus representing our official position on major issues. Policy papers gather all briefings, brochures, statements from working groups or other Group bodies which have not been submitted to a vote but reflect a more technical position on specific topics. Studies are reports commissioned to experts and are accompanied most of the time with our political recommendations. For information and transparency purposes, we also publish here all Group letters sent to the other institutions or representatives

Renewables and energy efficiency

A new analysis by the UN environment Programme (UNEP) reveals a boom in investment into renewables. The report says investment capital flowing into renewable energy climbed from $ 80 billion in 2005 to a record $ 100 billion in 2006. The UN body concludes that renewables could provide almost 25% of the world's electricity by 2030.
