EU Energy (part 1) - 2012

2 911 views

ENSURING SAFE AND SECURE ENERGY FOR EUROPE Efficient energy production, transport and storage are the cornerstones of a secure, sustainable and competitive energy policy. Modern and pan-European infrastructure, be it gas and oil pipelines, wind parks, and bioenergy, solar or nuclear plants, ensures the security of energy supply for all European citizens. Europe has identified shortcomings in its energy network and priority routes for electricity transmission and oil and gas distribution. The EU is now focusing on investing and building the infrastructure of the future. At the same time, it is investing in research and in demonstration projects to make sure that the best energy technologies find their way to the market. This is even more important with a view to the 20-20-20 climate objectives. Their achievement requires smart grids capable of integrating energy coming from renewable sources. Rebuilding our energy system for a low-carbon future is not just a task for the energy industry. Technological improvements, greater efficiency, resilience to a changing climate and new flexibility will be necessary. This is not a task which a single Member State can achieve on its own.
