Version française bientôt disponible. The debate on the overall cost of electricity from intermittent renewable energy sources must be completely transparent and the data publicly available, said the European Economic and Social Committee at Wednesday's Informal Meeting of Energy Ministers in Dublin.

The EESC argues that a sustainable energy system – comprised largely of renewables – is the only long-term solution to our energy future but transparency and a more open debate on costs' related issues are essential for paving the way, maintaining the strong support of citizens and preparing the required policy decisions.
