This State of the Energy Union Report 2023 is prepared by the European Commission and is presented to The European Parliament, The Council, The European Economic And Social Committee And The Committee of the Regions.

The EU has successfully managed to avoid the worst of the energy crisis. At the same time, it has used the crisis to strengthen its aim to accelerate the clean energy transition, which is aimed at making Europe the first climate-neutral continent by 2050. The European Green Deal, the EU’s ‘answer to the call of history’ is now not only a climate imperative and Europe’s growth strategy, but also a necessity in terms of the EU’s energy security and autonomy.

The annual State of the Energy Union report, together with its accompanying reports, takes stock of the EU’s progress towards the objectives of the Energy Union and the clean energy transition in line with the energy and climate targets. This year’s report looks back at how the EU reacted towards unprecedented crises and challenges during the current commission’s mandate and considers remaining challenges.
