On June 14, 2018, negotiators from the Council, the European Parliament and the Commission found a political agreement on the next iteration of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II). The directive is part of the Clean Energy for All Europeans package, proposed by the European Commission on November 30, 2016. The deal will now have to be formally approved by the European Parliament and the EU Council before being published in the EU Official Journal and entering into force. Although the text is not publically available, this report refers to the agreed upon provisions of RED II.
