EUGINE initiates letter to EU Commission on critical infrastructure

EUGINE, together with EUTurbines, initiated a joint letter Cogen Europe, EBA, ETE, ETN, EUGINE, EUTurbines, SolarPower Europe and WindEurope, associations representing the providers of power generation technologies and services.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis presents a great challenge to the European economy and society, whose impact and extent remain difficult to assess. Drastic measures are needed to limit the virus propagation, yet essential services need to be guaranteed.

Following the publication of the European Commission’s “Guidelines for border management measures to protect health and ensure the availability of goods and essential services” (C(2020) 1753 final) on March 16th, 2020, we tried to raise the European Commission’s attention to an additional area not covered yet: the energy sector and related services and infrastructure as key contributors in ensuring the well-functioning of Europe’s economy and society.
