EU Transport, Telecommunications and Energy Council meeting focuses on consumers

The European Union`s Council for Transport, Telecommunications and Energy met in Brussels with the ministers of EU member states, to adopt a document called `Energy Policies for Consumers,` which stipulates the rights of consumers on the European energy market. The Romanian Association for the Protection of Consumers (APC Romania) and the European Consumers` Organisation (BEUC) issued a warning about the importance energy consumers should have in making decisions at EU level, which would increase the transparency of consumers` rights and their freedom of choice. “By adopting the “Energy Policies for Consumers”, the ministers of EU member states have the occasion to send a warning signal to electricity providers. Governments` activity could be simplified if clear regulations were passed about price transparency, consumers` protection and solving complaints,” said Monique Goyens, BEUC director general.
