EU recovery plan

In the context of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the European Union implemented the REPowerEu plan to cut off the importation of Russian fossil fuels. With this aim, the Commission asked Member States to insert RepowerEU chapters into their National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP). These plans were launched post-covid to ensure the recovery of Member States’ economies thanks to both green and digital transitions. These funds must support a just and local transition helping local actors to act for energy sovereignty and respecting the planet’s boundaries.

However, today it is not clear where these funds will land.
