Post-2013 budget: MEPs call for clearer priorities

EU budgetary resources are likely to be scarce after 2013, and so must be used sparingly. The EU Commissioners for energy, development, transport and research, plus an EU External Action Service representative, were quizzed by the Policy Challenges Committee Tuesday on where they feel the money should go. The first debate, with Energy Commissioner Günther Oettinger, centred on how to save energy, reduce Europe's dependence on foreign energy suppliers and secure sustainable funding for the ITER international nuclear fusion research project. MEPs also stressed the importance of energy choices in combating climate change and questioned the wisdom of using public/private combined funding for energy projects.
