EU Political Institutions

To be able to lobby successfully for the use of NG/biomethane as a transportation fuel, NGVA Europe is closely observing and trying to influence the work of the following EU Political Institutions:

European Commission

EU Parliament Committees

European Council

The European Commission (formally the Commission of the European Communities) is the executive branch of the European Union. The body is responsible for proposing legislation, implementing decisions, upholding the Union's treaties and the general day-to-day running of the Union. The Commission separates its competences upon different Directorate-Generals.

The European Parliament (EP) is the only directly elected parliamentary institution of the European Union (EU). Together with the Council of the European Union (the Council), it forms the bicameral legislative branch of the Union's institutions. In the process of proposing and drafting legislation, the European Commission will consult the various Standing Committees of the European parliament.  

The European Council brings together the heads of state or government of the European Union and the president of the Commission. It defines the general political guidelines of the European Union. The decisions taken at the European Council meetings represent a major impetus in defining the general political guidelines of the European Union.
