Chapter 4: The European Green Deal: shifting the focus to the energy transition
Restricted access

In 2019, the EU launched the European Green Deal, a roadmap for policies and legislation that should drive the energy transition in the Union to the achievement of climate neutrality in 2050. This chapter investigates the political and policy context in which the Green Deal originated, its main policy/legal components, and the domestic and external consequences of its implementation. Particular attention is paid to the 2030 Climate and Energy Framework, the ‘Fit for 55 Agenda’ and the EU’s Climate Law. With regard to the international repercussions of the Green Deal, the focus is on the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism, including its perception by the EU’s key trade partners.
