Dear Energy,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting all documents relating to the stakeholder meeting on short-term emergency options that took place on April 26 2022, as well as any subsequent stakeholder meetings on the topic.

This should include:

- a list of invitees and copies of invitations;
- correspondence with invitees before and after the meeting(s), including any attachments eg accompanying letters;
- any preparatory documents made in advance of the meeting(s), for example a list of policy options to be discussed;
- any correspondence with other DGs on the policy options being proposed;
- any preparatory documents shared with invitees, eg questions they were asked to answer in advance, proposals they were supposed to consider;
- any presentations given at the meeting(s);
- DG ENER's own minutes of the meeting(s) and conclusions that were shared internally and with other DGs;
- responses from other DGs to the conclusions of the meeting(s);
- subsequent policy positions that integrated the conclusions of the meeting(s).

Yours faithfully,

Pascoe Sabido

Dear Energy,

Please pass this on to the person who reviews confirmatory applications.

I am filing the following confirmatory application with regards to my access to documents request 'Stakeholder meeting on short-term emergency options'.

In the documents, many names have been redacted without regard to public interest. Please can you review the documents and display the names.

In particular, document 6, the stakeholder meeting slides, has the names of panelists redacted for seemingly no justifiable reason. The European Commission response the the energy crisis has been a key political issue for over a year now, and those it invites to advise it have also been a topic of relevant public interest, given the implications of its decisions not just on the 450 million EU citizens but the world. Therefore the names of those advising it should be public.

Yours faithfully,

Pascoe Sabido

Thank you for your message on 22 August 2023 explaining that you will not be able to meet your previous deadline.
