The European Commission adopted the “ELECTRA Communication” by 29th October 2009, responding to the recommendations of the 2008 ELECTRA Report (see below) issued by a team of industrial experts and connecting them with ongoing and planned EU policies. It also takes account of the European Economic Recovery Plan.
The electrical industry is a key actor in providing solutions for today’s and tomorrow’s pressing issues: a reliable energy supply, green transportation, energy efficient installations and buildings, a smart industrial production etc. The “ELECTRA” Communication identifies the areas to which this industry can significantly contribute while at the same time maintaining and improving its competitiveness, especially in times of recession.
