  • Eurostat clarifies how to record energy performance contracts in national accounts

Eurostat, the Statistical Office of the European Commission, has published today an updated guidance note on the recording of energy performance contracts (EPCs) in government accounts. The revised guidance note clarifies the accounting rules applied to the treatment of energy performance contracts. It note follows up on the work already undertaken by Eurostat to clarify the accounting rules for various types of public investment, including the Guide to the Statistical Treatment of Public Private Partnerships published last year. Energy performance contracts in the public sector offer a practical solution to make public buildings and other public infrastructures more energy efficient, as the initial investment can be covered by a private partner and repaid by guaranteed energy savings. However, frequently this type of contract simultaneously contains elements of a rental, service, lease, purchase or loan agreement, making its recording complex. At the request of Member States, Eurostat has worked with National Statistical Institutes (NSIs) to reflect on the most appropriate recording of EPCs in government accounts, resulting in the guidance note published today. More information can be found in a press release and memo online. The guidance note is available to download here.

  • Juncker Plan: New projects signed, European Fund for Strategic Investments supports 300,000 jobs

The latest projects to receive support from the Investment Plan's European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI) are Nova School of Business and Economics in Portugal, to extend their campus; Águas de Portugal, to improve water supply and sanitation; Mecachrome, a circular economy project in France; Amadéite Group in France to support investments in marine biotechnology; Vertis Venture 3 in Italy which finances early-stage technology projects; and today the European Investment Bank (EIB) signed an agreement to finance the construction of 524 near-zero-energy social houses in Navarra, Spain, creating more than 700 jobs. The European Commission and the EIB Group estimate that the EFSI has so far supported 300,000 jobs across the EU. By 2020 that figure should be 700,000. This week the European Parliament and Member States came to an agreement in principle on EFSI 2.0 - the extension and reinforcement of the European Fund for Strategic Investments. (For more information about the EFSI 2.0 agreement, see our EFSI 2.0 Q&A, and for more details on any of the projects and Investment Plan results see the new and updated website, which has even more data about EFSI financing including results for all countries, more material such as stories about small businesses that have benefitted so far, and all the latest news. 

 

  • Convergence criteria for joining the euro: State of play for non-euro area Member States

As President Juncker stated, "It's not my idea to request that Member States now gallop into the euro. They have to fulfil the criteria before joining the euro. This will not change. But a Euro-accession support instrument should help those who want to join." This is why President Juncker in his 2017 speech on the State of the Union, proposed the creation of a Euro-accession Instrument, to offer technical and financial assistance to non-euro area Member States on their path towards full membership of the euro. All EU Member States except Denmark and the United Kingdom are required by the EU Treaties to join the euro once they fulfil all conditions, but as President Juncker said, "no one would be forced to do so. The strict convergence criteria for joining the euro would continue to apply", he explained. Today the European Commission published the latest available facts and figures on the situation of non-euro area Member States vis-à-vis meeting the convergence criteria. See President Juncker's statement in EN, DE and FR. More information is available online in the two factsheets covering the legal parameters (also available in DE) and on the convergence criteria and facts and figures on non-euro area Member States. 

  • Preparation of the Eurogroup and informal ECOFIN meetings, Tallinn 15-16 September 2017

Commissioner Moscovici represented the European Commission at today's meeting of the Eurogroup. Both Vice-President Dombrovskis and Commissioner Moscovici attend the informal ECOFIN Council meetings today and tomorrow in Tallinn, Estonia. At today's Eurogroup, Ministers held a thematic discussion on ways to increase the economic resilience of Member States in the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) in order to better withstand internal and external shocks. Ministers were also informed about the state of play of the stability support programme for Greece. Commissioner Moscovici participated in the press conference following the Eurogroup meeting. EU Ministers will exchange views during a working lunch on deepening the Economic and Monetary Union and maximising effectiveness of EU finances. This discussion will be followed by a working session on the same topic based on the Commission's  Reflection Paper on the deepening of the Economic and Monetary Union published in May 2017. Ministers will further debate the implications of technological innovation in the area of financial regulation as part of the Capital Markets Union. On Saturday, Ministers will hold a working session on digital economy and taxation, given the importance of adapting European tax systems to the challenges of a modern economy. The discussion comes just days after President Juncker confirmed in his State of the Union letter of intent that the Commission would come forward in 2018 with a proposal for the taxation of the digital economy. In the final working session on Saturday, the ECOFIN will look at ways to increase cost efficiency and sustainability of EU customs IT systems. Vice-President Dombrovskis will participate in the two press conferences following the ECOFIN sessions on 15 and 16 September.   

 

  • Clean, shared and intelligent mobility: Commission launches the EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK

The European Commission is today launching the 16th edition of the EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK taking place from 16 to 22 September across more than 2000 towns and cities. The objective of the EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK is to promote sustainable urban mobility and this year edition will encourage people to use shared forms of transportation such as bicycle and car sharing under the slogan ‘Sharing gets you further'. Shared mobility solutions can indeed reduce congestion, air pollution and make a significant contribution to the decarbonisation of urban transport, which is responsible for about 23% of the EU's greenhouse gas emissions. This is essential for Europe to be "the leader when it comes to the fight against climate change" envisioned by President Juncker in the State of the Union. The EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK will include events such as car-free days all across Europe and the second edition of the European day without a road death, which aims at raising awareness on road safety.
