Winter package on the Energy Union

On 16 February 2016, the European Commission presented its winter package on the Energy Union. The goal of this medium-to-long-term project is to integrate the European energy markets into a Single Energy Market.

The measures in the winter package form part of an overall package of more than 40 planned measures announced in February 2015, designed by the Commission to strengthen and standardise the European energy markets. The now released winter package contains the Commission's responses to the security of gas supply, intergovernmental agreements, LNG and gas storage as well as to heating and cooling.
