The EU’s energy policy: towards a more sustainable, more secure and more competitive energy system
Unlike environmental issues, the EU Treaty incorporated the field of energy policy only recently. Only from 2009 did the so-called Lisbon Treaty (the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union) include specific provisions relating to energy policy. In its Article 194 it is specified that the EU’s energy policy shall aim, in a spirit of solidarity between Member States,to:
1 ensure the functioning of the energy market; 2 ensure security of energy supply in the Union; 3 promote energy efficiency and energy saving and the development of
new and renewable forms of energy;and 4 promote the interconnection of energy networks.
