    Since Russia throttled the European Union’s supply to natural gas, the countries dependent upon the supply for everyday needs are headed for an energy crisis. The President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, has a plan — the mandatory reduction of electricity use by EU citizens. On Wednesday, a clip circulating Twitter via Disclose.tv, shows Leyen sharing her energy plan during a press conference. “We see there’s a global scarcity of energy. So whatever we do, one thing is for sure, we have to save electricity, but we have to save it in a smart way,” she said. “So what we have to do is flatten the curve and avoid the peak demands,” Leyen said. “We will propose a mandatory target for reducing electricity use at peak hours. And we will work very closely with the member states to achieve this.” Bloomberg explains that the proposal would directly limit how much electricity average consumers would be permitted to use. The EU is planning to propose two demand reduction targets. The first would require governments to...

    SKOPJE, North Macedonia (AP) — Nightly protests in North Macedonia over the past week have left dozens injured. At the heart of the turmoil is the small Balkan country’s long-running quest to join the European Union, a process that has faced one hurdle after the other. The most recent obstacle is a veto by EU member Bulgaria. A French proposal for a compromise to address Bulgaria’s concerns has divided North Macedonia, sparking the sometimes violent protests. France’s plan also met deep objections in Bulgaria and helped to bring down the government, which had accepted the compromise. WHAT IS THE DISPUTE ABOUT? North Macedonia has been an EU candidate for 17 years. The country emerged from the breakup of Yugoslavia in the 1990s and sought to forge a strong national identity. But in a region where borders and ethnicities have shifted and overlapped over centuries, it was beset by problems from the start. The country’s chosen name, Macedonia, sparked outrage in neighboring Greece, which said the term harbored expansionist aims against its own province of the same...
    08/01/2021 at 09:00 CEST The European automotive industry, which represents 6% of employment and more than 7% of the Community GDP, will have to progressively get rid of polluting engines until in 2035 in the European Union (EU) only clean vehicles are marketed, with the electric car as a great asset for the future. It is the proposal of the European Commission (EC) within the big legislative package to decarbonize the EU economy in the middle of the century, which will then have to be negotiated with the Member States, represented in the Council, and with the European Parliament. “20% of our emissions continue to come from our roads & rdquor ;, declared the European Commissioner for Transport, Adina Valean, in the presentation of the great legislative proposal of the European Commission. Despite the significant environmental acceleration that is intended to give the automotive industry, the effort is conceived as a boost to make it more competitive in the future without CO2 that lies ahead. “We are not going to leave our industry abandoned,...

    France is pressuring the European Union in recent days to regulations on large technology companies are modified to give more power to member states. Among these great technologies we have Google, Amazon, Facebook and, of course, Apple. Apple logo with flag of France As revealed by the Financial times, France wants to change the Digital Services Law, designed to tackling illegal content online in the European Union, so that each EU member state has the right to individually fine large technology companies and force them to remove content on their platforms. The drafted law specifies that only the EU countries where these companies are based have this capacity. Therefore, since Apple, Google and Facebook are based in the Republic of Ireland, only Ireland can sanction these companies or request content removal. France wants more power against big tech France’s proposal would give the 27 Member States of the European Union the ability to control or sanction to big tech companies in exactly the same way that Ireland can. Which in part makes a lot of sense. IPhone 12 Pro on...
    The country-by-country “reporting” proposal has been blocked for five years between European countries. The Portuguese will try to change his fate. IThere are fights that experience a burst at times when we no longer expected them. This is potentially the case with country-by-country tax transparency (reporting), which would force multinationals to publish their accounting data (turnover, profit, taxes paid, number of employees, etc.) for each country where they have activities. The concept, pushed for years by civil society and certain political groups, had been taken up by the Juncker Commission after the Luxleaks scandal over the ultra-generous tax agreements concluded between the Luxembourg tax authorities and large companies, revealed in particular by The evening, but finally materialized in a proposal after the Panama Papers scandal, in 2016.
    FANG (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google) apps on a smartphone.Adam Jeffery | CNBC LONDON — France and the Netherlands have proposed stricter EU rules to oversee large technology firms, such as Alphabet, Facebook and Amazon. In a joint document, seen by CNBC and due to be sent to the European Commission, the EU's executive arm, the two countries suggested that an EU authority should be able to control the market position of these large tech platforms. "Our common ambition is to design a framework that will be efficient enough to address the economic footprint of such actors on the European economy and to be able to 'break them open,'" Cédric O, the secretary of state for digital transition in France, said in a statement. "Access to data, to services, interoperability … these are efficient tools that we should be able to use, with a tailor-made approach, in order to tackle market foreclosure and ensure freedom of choice for consumers," he added. The EU, arguably at the forefront of regulation in this space, has intensified talks regarding Big Tech and the...
    EU Heads of State and Government continue to meet in Brussels to negotiate the Recovery Fund Of the 750,000 million that is going to be launched to face the crisis caused by the Covid-19 pandemic, but the hopes that they will reach an agreement at this summit are diminishing. In fact, the European leaders themselves have questioned what will happen … at least on this date. The stakes are clear: There will be an agreement, although it will not arrive before the end of July, and the plan will be very diluted with respect to its current form., which will not take over Pedro Sánchez’s aspirations. Those are the most repeated predictions in recent days by experts. For example, at Danske Bank they are blunt about it: “We are not confident that an agreement will be reached this weekend, but we hope that it will be reached before the European Commission begins its summer holidays in August.” Point of view with which the experts from Rabobank agree, who see “it is unlikely that the necessary unanimity of support for this...
    The president of the European Council Charles Michel proposed Friday to establish the budget 2021-2027 of the EU to 1.074 billion euros, slightly down compared to his proposal of last February (1.094 billion), but to preserve the fund post-coronavirus stimulus to 750 billion euros, in accordance with the allocation key between loans and subsidies proposed by the Commission. This decline in the multi-year budget aims to seduce the “four frugal” that are the Netherlands, Sweden, Austria and Denmark, more reluctant to a recovery plan which will mainly benefit the countries of the south like Spain or Italy, the most affected by the pandemic. The Commission had for its part proposed 1.100 billion euros. On the other hand, Mr. Michel confirms the amount proposed by the Commission for the stimulus fund (750 billion), as well as the latter’s proposal to distribute this fund to two-thirds via non-refundable subsidies, much to the chagrin of the quartet. But the latter countries could find satisfaction in the former Belgian Prime Minister’s desire to maintain the discounts they benefit from their national contribution to...
