The Directorate-General for Energy (DG Ener), or ENER, is a Directorate-General of the European Commission, created on 17 February 2010 when it was separated from the Transport DG,[1] with which it had been combined since 2000.


The Directorate-General for Energy is responsible for promoting and regulating the European Energy Union and, since 2019, overseeing the implementation of the Clean Energy for all Europeans package as part of the European Green New Deal.


The Directorate-General for Energy, based in Brussels, reports to Kadri Simson, European Commissioner for Energy. Former Directorate-Generals include Miguel Arias Cañete, Dominique Ristori and Phillip Lowe.


The Directorate-General is made up of 6 Directorates (two of which deal with EURATOM issues), and the Euratom Supply Agency.
