An analysis of risks and opportunities associated with several legal options for designing a streamlined and simplified climate and energy policy planning and reporting system for 2030 and the Energy Union, demonstrating that:
- Any planning and reporting regime must encompass core principles of good governance that underpinned the 2020 regime.
- Planning and reporting arrangements must be binding and should strengthen transparency and accountability, through the utilisation of enforcement and course correction, if necessary.
- It is possible to simplify and streamline climate and energy reporting and planning obligations into one legislative instrument, either new or existing, while also maintaining important reporting requirements in existing dedicated instruments (e.g. RED, EED, ESD).
