EEB welcomes the European Commission initiative of revising the State aid rules in the field of climate, environmental protection and energy (CEEAG) to align them with the European Green Deal and welcome the possibility to provide comments through the open public consultation.

We have reviewed the definitions provided by the Commission (section 2.4 of the Guidelines), with the aim of making them clearer to not provide space for interpretation and/or misuse of the Guidelines for harmful projects. We provided three new definitions, which we think should be important to include.
