RGI appreciated the efforts by the Commission to select PCIs, which are in line with the energy and climate objectives Europe has committed to, and stressed how important it was that projects that contribute to delivering the objectives agreed upon in the Paris Agreement were included in the final PCI list. This is essential to improve the reputation of the PCI-label across the European Union and its perception amongst European citizens where the projects are to be realised.

RGI similarly welcomed the publication of the 'Clean Energy For All Europeans' package that should help the EU to make the transition to a zero carbon economy. RGI believes that the extensive set of legislative proposals from the European Commission is essential to ensure the full integration of efforts performed by Member States, businesses and other stakeholders for a successful energy transition in Europe and to empower citizens and prosumers by putting them in the centre of the clean energy system for their benefit and an increased flexibility of the system.
