Abstract

Energy has been an important underlying factor in the Ukraine crisis, with Russian gas exports accounting for a significant share of Europe’s energy needs. Bob Feidt writes on the role of energy security in the EU’s attempts to tackle climate change. He argues that while the creation of a competitive single energy market in Europe is a vital component of the EU’s climate strategy, a secure energy supply is also required while states shift their energy mix toward renewable sources. This means engaging with the EU’s traditional energy suppliers, including Russia, to make sure the transition is as smooth as possible.
