Background

The Council is to be called on to reached a political agreement on the draft directive on indirect land-use change amending the fuel quality and renewable energy directives. The aim of the proposed directive is to minimise the impact of indirect land-use change on greenhouse gas emissions and to promote a transition to biofuels that deliver substantial greenhouse gas savings.
The Council is due to endorse a Council report on the progress on the completion of the internal energy market as a follow-up to the European Council of 22 May 2013. Furthermore, the Commission updates ministers on progress towards the 2014 target for the completion of the internal energy market. The May European Council in its conclusions reaffirmed the objectives of completing the internal energy market by 2014 and developing interconnections so as to put an end to any isolation of member states from European gas and electricity networks by 2015.
The Council is expected to endorse a Council report on the review of developments on the external dimension of the EU energy policy, as part of the follow-up to the European Council of 22 May 2013. In addition, the Commission explains recent developments in the field of external energy relations. The May European Council instructed the Council to “follow up on its conclusions of November 2011 and review developments regarding EU external energy policy” before the end of 2013.
