The European Commission proposes a new framework to help the transition to a climate-neutral industry
The new framework allows member states to support the transition through financial aid to prevent investment diversion and boost clean tech manufacturing in Europe.
The European Commission proposed a new Temporary Crisis and Transition Framework, in accordance with the Green Deal Industrial Plan, to advance critical sectors towards the transition to a net-zero economy.
Taken together with the changes made to the General Block Exemption Regulation (GBER), the Temporary Crisis and Transition Framework will contribute to accelerating investment and financing for clean tech manufacturing in Europe. The new framework will allow member states to support measures to facilitate the transition towards a net-zero industry until 31 December 2025, including granting subsidies for the production of strategic equipment, key components, and related critical raw materials. Also, under specific circumstances, increased financial assistance may be provided to deter the relocation of investments outside Europe.
