Belgium’s Energy Policy Review – Report by IEA

Belgium has made notable progress on deploying offshore wind and increasing the share of electric vehicles. However, fossil fuels still dominate the country’s energy mix, a dependence that is expected to increase. All sectors have considerable work ahead of them to meet Belgium’s targets for increasing the share of renewables, lowering energy demand and reducing emissions.

ICCT Briefing: ZEV Deployment in Europe, Middle East, and Central & South Asia

EV adoption is still at a very early stage for most countries in Eurasia, although several countries are scaling up EV sales of passenger vehicles. Ukraine and Jordan have higher EV market shares for passenger cars than other emerging economies, at 1.5% and 1.1%, respectively, as of 2020. Early signs of EV uptake are apparent in Lebanon, Nepal, Turkey, Serbia, and Belarus, with market shares between 0.1% and 0.3%.

Briefing on Renewable Energy Remuneration Rules in Spain

RD-Law 6/2022 orders an extraordinary review of the parameters for 2020-2022, applicable as of 1 January 2022. The parameters will be approved in 2 months. The mechanism to adjust for market price deviations for energy produced in 2023 and subsequent years is eliminated. The declared aim of these measures is to reduce the charges of the electric system and to supposedly thereby lower the final price of the energy.
