Central Europe Energy Partners begins co-operation with the Polish Chamber of the Chemical Industry

Central Europe Energy Partners (CEEP) has begun co-operation with the Polish Chamber of the Chemical Industry (PIPC).

The main fields of co-operation include actions aimed at creating a rational ETS system, developing effective carbon leakage measures, enhancing the development of renewable energy sources, and supporting the improvement of energy efficiency in the chemical industry. “What brings us and CEEP members together, is mainly the need for stable regulations and security of supplies of our energy resources. Both of these fields are shaped predominantly at the EU level. As much as three-quarters of the EU Member States’ legislation in the area of energy-intensive and chemical industries, is produced in Brussels. I [...]
