Dear Climate Action,
Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:
1. All documents from January 1st 2015 to date (including emails) between European Commissioner Cañete, members of his Cabinet and other staff members of DG CLIMA ; and stakeholders including research institutes, companies, lobby associations, consultancy or law firms, on the topic of biomass in relation to the new renewable energy directive for the period after 2020.
Please exclude from the scope of this request the responses to the public consultation, which I understand will be published anyway (https://ec.europa.eu/energy/en/consultat...).
2. a complete list of meetings held on this issue between European Commissioner Cañete, members of his Cabinet and other staff members of DG CLIMA from January 1st 2015 to date, with the stakeholders as mentioned above, and the full minutes or reports from those meetings, as well as participants lists of those meetings.
I kindly urge you to not apply a rigid interpretation of the clause on commercial secrets.
I look forward to a swift and positive consideration of my request.

Dear Mrs. Holland,
Thank you for your email.
Before we proceed to the registration of your request, please note that DG Energy is the lead DG as far as the New Renewable Energy Directive is concerned (see http://ec.europa.eu/smart-regulation/roa...).
Could you please confirm that you would still like to address your request to DG Climate Action rather than DG Energy?
Thank you in advance for your help.
