5 toughest questions faced by Maroš Šefčovič (Energy Union) – Hearings of Juncker Commission

After Alenka Bratušek resigned ahead of the European Parliament’s vote, Jean-Claude Juncker proposed Maroš Šefčovič as Vice President for Energy Union. Šefčovič (nominated by Slovakia) had to answer a number of difficult questions during his hearing by the European Parliament’s Committees on Industry, Research & Energy (ITRE) and Environment, Public Health & Food Safety (ENVI) on 20 October. Šefčovič’s answers to these 5 toughest questions reveal best how he managed to handle the parliamentary grilling:

– How should the European Union take forward its relationship with Russia, including South Stream?
UN climate talks and the EU 2030 climate & energy package:

  • Who will negotiate for the EU in Paris in 2015?
  • What will the 2030 package mean for countries like Poland?

– Do you support a 30% binding energy efficiency target and a strong eco-design directive?
– What role will biofuels play in decarbonising the transport sector?
– Did you vote in favour of public subsidies for new nuclear power at Hinkley Point C in the UK?
