LYMEC RESOLUTIONS FORM Submitted by: Jonge Democraten Resolution spokesperson: Arvid Plugge Title European fund for sustainable energy Chapter 06. Climate action, Energy and natural resources Keywords Renewable energy, Energy, Natural resources Summary (optional) Whereas, Noting that, Stating, Taking into account, Recognising etc. Building on (October 2015) 1.25 No double standards – the EU needs a frugal budget that invests into the future! 4.04 Time to Complete the Internal Market 6.03 Resolution on Basic Principles and Goals for an EC Environmental Policy 6.06 Reducing the Use of Fossil Fuels 6.07 Urgency Resolution on Climate Change 6.10 EmPOWERing Europe – The Single European Energy Market of the future Knowing, Aware of, Considering that etc. Considering: ● ● ● Energy from fossil and nuclear sources are indirect subsidized due to the external effects which are borne by society as health cost, loss of ecological capital and its benefits, loss of life expectancy, loss of welfare and prosperity, etc. The worldwide subsidies on energy are estimated by the IMF at 5.3 T$ (5.3 long scale billion / 5.3 short scale trillion), for which external costs passed on to society are the main share. (to get a feeling: if this amount is spread equally on the world wide energy consumption, it equals about 0,03 $/kWh on primary energy – for electricity this price has to be multiplied by roughly a factor 2 to take the efficiency of the power plant in to account). Almost every EU country has national regulations to ● ● Concludes, Stresses out, Urges, Demands, Expresses, Believes that, Welcomes, Condemns etc. Believes that: ● Free market dynamics is the most efficient tool to change to a revolution or evolution of the energy market ● The free market dynamics is crippled by the hidden subsidy of fossil and nuclear energy The most efficient and favorable way to restore the free market dynamics, namely to return the external costs of energy back to the polluter (plant operator), will be difficult and time consuming to achieve due to: the strong energy and industries lobby, economic interests, incapable politic organizations, etc The fastest way to restore a decent level playing field for an effective market dynamic is to give a direct subsidy to renewable energy generation projects. The national subsidies for renewable energy is admirable but is not the most efficient in using the geographic resources of the EU. A EU-wide fund for renewable energy will help the market to exploit the most favorable locations to get as much effectiveness of the investment as possible ● ● ● LYMEC Calls upon, LYMEC proposes the following etc. Striking down other resolutions (optional) subsidize renewable energy The effectiveness of sustainable energy sources are very dependent on the installed location Little to no time is available to switch to a less greenhouse gas polluting society to prevent drastic consequences due to global warming. LYMEC proposes the following: An EU fund shall be created to stimulate renewable energy generation and projects to integrate renewable energy in a EU wide reliable energy system.
