Energy Roadmap 2050: a secure, competitive and low-carbon energy sector is possible


Günther Oettinger said "Only a new energy model will make our system secure, competitive and sustainable in the long-run. We now have a European framework for the necessary policy measures to be taken in order to secure the right investments."
