Tackling key issues

“Europe's citizens and companies need a secure supply of energy at affordable prices in order to maintain our standards of living. At the same time, the negative effects of energy use, particularly fossil fuels, on the environment must be reduced. That is why EU policy focuses on creating a competitive internal energy market offering quality service at low prices, on developing renewable energy sources, on reducing dependence on imported fuels, and on doing more with a lower consumption of energy.”

European Union Directorate General for Energy Policy Statement

“The geopolitics of energy insecurity will be a key theme for the 21st Century... We are moving from a position of relative energy independence to one of significant dependence on imports… Oil and gas prices can be expected to increase, perhaps very significantly. More nations will flex their muscles in the pursuit of energy resources.

We need to support the building of key infrastructure enabling energy and fuels to move around Europe in response to need. And we need to support European attempts to diversify sources and routes of energy imports, including the “Southern Corridor” project for gas imports to Central Europe from the Caspian and Central Asia.”

Malcolm Wicks MP, as Special Representative on International Energy to the Prime Minister
