European and Global Energy Governance

With global demand for energy, greenhouse gas emissions and energy price volatility all increasing, heightened transformation pressure is felt more broadly than just in national energy systems. Steadily growing interdependencies make energy more and more a prominent matter of international politics. Traditionally security of supply has been uppermost; now sustainability and competitiveness are increasingly gaining ground. Energy policy in the European Union is gradually being placed in a coherent regulatory framework with the adoption of the third internal energy market package. Yet when it comes to shaping and steering global energy relationships, the institutional landscape remains characterised by great fragmentation. Challenges persist over ensuring security of supply and transforming the energy system, both in EU energy policy and in global energy governance.
