"Mr President, the second topic of the summit, the climate/energy package, remains in some contradiction with the first one, the Lisbon Strategy, or the competitiveness of the EU. Emission limits for the less developed countries of the EU are extremely low, not taking into account the future GDP growth rate in those countries. However, I very strongly support the package. I support it, even knowing that it is a major step for our economy and will cost EUR 60 billion per year. How can we help our economy, then? I can see only one way, maybe the simplest: cheap, efficient, new low-carbon technologies. We cannot achieve that in the short term without financial support at EU level. Common European funds for new technologies means, firstly, partnership. You spoke about that in your speech, Mr President. Secondly, you also talked about the fifth freedom and the flow of knowledge. Thirdly, European added value for innovation means a more innovative Europe. Fourthly, give a strong political signal for European industry to start with co-financing those technologies to take responsibility for them. We need such new technologies for energy efficiency, renewables, zero emission, coal use and nuclear energy. We need at least EUR 2 billion per year. This means EUR 10 billion from now until 2013 – in advance, as a matter of fact. In this way we can diminish the cost of the climate/energy package to our economy. Additionally, in future we can also offer our technologies to third countries, to develop emerging economies and – in reality, not only theoretically – to save our planet. Finally, I would like to add that I believe in our priorities – energy, fighting climate change, the Lisbon Strategy – but we need some EU money for our priorities."@en1
