ETD Revision

In view of the meeting of the WP on Tax Questions on 10 November, the Czech Presidency published a compromise text covering the Energy Taxation Directive. The document specifies that Member States will be able to grant tax exemptions or reductions to nuclear electricity (in addition to wind, solar, etc.). It shows that there are still questions about how to tax hydrogen used in fuel cells – several options are being considered. The levels of taxation are left in square brackets at this stage, since the Presidency believes that they should be decided at the ministerial level. For more information, please contact Ennio Prizzi.
