Extraits de la conférence de presse de Günther Oettinger, sur la communication 'Stratégie européenne pour la sécurité énergétique'
On 28 May 2014, Günther Oettinger, Member of the EC in charge of Energy, held a press conference on the new proposal by the EC aiming at putting in place a comprehensive strategy to strengthen security of supply.
The European Commission reacted on the current geopolitical environment and the EU´s import dependence: It advocated a new European Energy Security Strategy. Diversifying external energy supplies, upgrading energy infrastructure, completing the EU internal energy market and saving energy are among its main points. The strategy also highlighted the need to coordinate national energy policy decisions and the importance of speaking with one voice when negotiating with external partners. It built on the progress already achieved since the gas crisis in 2009. PHOTO
