The European Commission released a series of documents today detailing plans for the bloc to wean itself off Russian fossil fuels. Beyond diversifying gas imports, most of the measures are medium- to long-term in nature, focused on three focal points: using more renewables, replacing natural gas with low-carbon energy sources such as hydrogen and biomethane, plus increased energy efficiency to reduce overall demand. The plan gives insights on how Brussels will achieve the goals of its RePowerEU plan, announced in March, to reduce Russian gas use by two-thirds this year and end it by 2027. The bloc is working on an oil embargo and has already placed a phased ban on coal imports.
