German Energy Agency and French counterpart welcome renewal of Élysée Treaty

dena / ADEME

The German Energy Agency (dena) and its French counterpart ADEME welcome the initiative to renew the seminal Élysée Treaty between the two countries, and to intensify cooperation in many areas, including energy policy and climate protection, the dena says in a press release. “The energy transition is a European project of progress, which should be at the centre of Franco-German cooperation,” dena head Andreas Kuhlmann says. He says that technical committees from the two countries should meet to align their positions and push the development of a European energy union. ADEME Executive Director Francois Moisan says cross-border projects, such as the Franco-German smart grid initiative, could serve as examples of cooperation that could be expanded to other European countries as well.
