European Energy Union to be established by Brussels

European Energy Union: The EU is planning to create a European Energy Union as the first step towards the formation of  common energy market, its Vice President Maros Sefcovic told a press conference today (February 4). “Our current energy policies are unsustainable in every sense and in urgent need of reorganisation,” he said. “Citizens should be at the core of our energy policy. While we have a very ambitious agenda, the momentum is here and now. We will work to ensure a coherent approach to energy across different policy areas, to create more predictability. Climate, transport, industry, research, external policy, the digital economy and agriculture will be all crucial to the project. The Energy Union aims to break the silo culture where it still exists and bring all relevant players to the same table – in short, the Energy Union will set the scene for a new way of making energy policy in Europe.”  A Strategic Framework for the establishment of the new Union is scheduled  to be adopted three weeks today.
