Euractive general - Lun, 20/10/2014 - 17:38

Study: EU can cut gas imports and carbon emissions by half

Euractive general - Lun, 20/10/2014 - 13:31

The European Union can slash natural gas imports from countries such as Russia by half and cut carbon dioxide emissions by 49% if it ramps up energy and efficiency improvements, a new report has argued.

Cost-effective measures in energy supply, industry and buildings would be good for the climate and boost energy security, the study by independent consultants Ecofys said.

The 49% cut to carbon, compared to 1990 levels, goes “far beyond” projections in the EU’s 2030 Climate and Energy Framework, the report said.

Euractive general - Lun, 20/10/2014 - 11:04

Around 40% of the European Commission's Overseas Development Aid (ODA) goes to Africa every year. The continent has received more than a quarter of the €2.7 billion increase in the aid budget since 2005 and, in 2009, aid for trade to the African, Caribbean and Pacific States increased to €3.6 billion. But where does the money end up?

Germany blames pro-Russian separatists for Malaysia airliner’s downing

Euractive general - Lun, 20/10/2014 - 07:53

Germany's BND, the first European foreign intelligence agency to say so, has concluded that pro-Russian rebels are to blame for the downing of Malaysia Airline MH17 in Ukraine in July, Der Spiegel weekly reported yesterday (19 October).

The crash over pro-Russian rebel-held territory in eastern Ukraine on July 17 killed all 298 passengers and crew and led to a further deterioration of ties between the West and Moscow, who are in dispute over Russia's role in the Ukraine crisis.

Credibility meets compromise in Europe's bank stress test

Euractive general - Lun, 20/10/2014 - 07:51

When Europe announced its latest health check of top banks early last year it promised a "comprehensive assessment" of how well prepared they were to withstand another financial crisis.

In practice, a spirit of comprehensive compromise has been just as important.

A series of Reuters interviews with officials, bankers and others involved in the European Central Bank's financial inspection of the eurozone's biggest banks shows that in the seven months since it began, the ECB has had to shoot down countless pleas from banks and national supervisors for special treatment.

Sweden suspects Russian submarine got stranded in its waters

Euractive general - Lun, 20/10/2014 - 07:41

Sweden yesterday (19 October) released a grainy photo of a mysterious vessel in waters around Stockholm, as its military hunted for a foreign submarine in the country's biggest such mobilisation since the Cold War.

The search in the Baltic Sea less than 50 km from the Swedish capital began on Friday. It reawakened memories of the final years of the Cold War when Sweden repeatedly hunted suspected Soviet submarines along its coast.

Europe’s unity is the best response to future challenges

Euractive general - Lun, 20/10/2014 - 07:22

Despite all of the challenges Europe faced in the last ten years, the continent remains united and open, and is now stronger and better able to face globalisation, writes José Manuel Barroso.

José Manuel Barroso is the outgoing European Commission president.

Over the past ten years, the European Union has endured a series of unprecedented crises, the likes of which we are unlikely to see again. But other, no less daunting challenges lie ahead, and we would do well to remember the lessons learned along the way.

Barroso: UK cannot get by without a little help from its friends

Euractive general - Lun, 20/10/2014 - 07:14

European Commission President José  Manuel Barroso will today (20 October) issue a plea to Britain not to isolate itself from Europe by picking fights over immigration, adding that EU membership boosts British international clout.

Britain's future in the 28-country trading bloc has been thrown into question by Prime Minister David Cameron, who has adopted an increasingly defiant stance on immigration to tackle the threat of the anti-EU UK Independence Party. UKIP's rising popularity threatens his bid for re-election in 2015.
