WindEurope feedback to the “draft Taxonomy Delegated Act”
WindEurope welcomes the draft Commission Delegated Regulation supplementing Regulation (EU) 2020/852 on the definition of the economic activities that could be considered substantially contributing to climate change mitigation or adaptation, while not significantly harming the other environmental objectives.
Wind energy is generally well captured in the draft Delegated Act, recognising its positive impact to mitigate climate change in line with the EU Green Deal objectives. However, we would like to suggest some changes in the screening criteria in sections 3.1 and 4.3 of Annexes I and II, outlined in page 3 of this response. These would better reflect the higher expectations that investors, Governments, and society have on wind energy.
