A list of all lobby meetings held by the commissioner in charge of Energy, Miguel Arias Cañete, or any other member of its Cabinet with any organisations representing churches and/or religious communities since 2014 onwards, including all emails, minutes, reports or any other briefing papers related to all those meetings.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for your e-mail dated 14/03/2019 providing us with your postal
address in the framework of your request for access to documents. We
hereby acknowledge receipt of your application for access to documents,
which was registered on 15/03/2019 under reference number GestDem

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days.

The time limit will expire on 05/04/2019. In case this time limit needs to
be extended, you will be informed in due course.

You have lodged your application via the AsktheEU.org website. Please note
that this is a private third-party website which has no link with any
institution of the European Union. Therefore, the European Commission

the use of this system.

Please note that the private third party running the AsktheEU.org website
is responsible and accountable for the processing of your personal data
via that website, and not the European Commission. For further information

We understand that the third party running that website usually publishes
the content of applicants’ correspondence with the European Commission on
that website. This includes the personal data that you may have
communicated to the European Commission (e.g. your private postal
address).

Similarly, the third party publishes on that website any reply that the
Commission will send to the email address of the applicants generated by
the AsktheEU.org website.

If you do not wish your correspondence with the European Commission to be
published on the AsktheEU.org website, you can provide us with an
alternative, private e-mail address for further correspondence.

In that case, the European Commission will send all future electronic
correspondence addressed to you only to that private address.

reference number.

Your application is currently being handled. However, we will not be in a
position to complete the handling of your application within the time

Dear Energy,

The last time limit expired on 02/05/2019 and I was told that I could expect to receive an advance copy by email last week. Nothing of that happened. Please, can you inform me about the status of my request?

Yours faithfully,

Álvaro Merino
