Commission Vice President Verheugen launches competitiveness report of Electra policy group

The 2020 targets are set, but how to get there? EU governments will need all the help of the electrical manufacturing and electronics industry to reach the 2020 goals that they committed to: less CO2 emissions and more energy efficiency and more renewables. The burning question; can we turn this potential burden on the economy into a win-win situation? “We can do it”, concludes the Electra policy group (Industry, EU-Commission, unions) in its report issued today, after a year of intense work in a group co-chaired by Commission Vice President Verheugen and Orgalime Past President Krubasik.
