Policy priorities

On 13 September 2013, the Commission adopted a report on the implementation of the September 2011 Communication on security of energy supply and international cooperation.

On 25 October 2012, the Decision establishing an information exchange mechanism on intergovernmental agreements between Member States and third countries in the field of energy was adopted by the European Parliament and the Council. It came into force in November 2012. The objective of this mechanism is to increase transparency among the Member States and ensure that EU internal market rules and energy security policy goals are respected in such agreements.
