Brussels in disarray over energy directive

Peter Vis, the chief of staff of EU Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard, has broken with protocol to warn that the European Commission's draft Energy Efficiency Directive could "undermine" the bloc's carbon market. It is extremely rare for Commission officials to comment on draft EU laws. But staff in the climate department are privately fuming that new efficiency regulations, due on 22 June, would apply not just to buildings and vehicles, but industrial sectors already covered by the EU's emissions trading scheme (ETS), which puts a price on carbon by placing a limit on CO2 emissions.
