France paving the way for a European Energy Community

on January 24, 2013, 10:45
Article - Jacques Delors, Sami Andoura and Michel Derdevet

Over sixty years ago, back in the early days when today’s Europe was first being forged, the pooling of coal and steel production under the aegis of a common High Authority was to constitute a major step in the construction of strengthened solidarity in the energy field among the six partner countries, and an unquestioned success in the Old World’s progress towards peace regained.

This common project is as relevant today as it was back then. A spate of recent debate on the energy transition process provides us with a tremendous opportunity to establish a fully-fledged integrated energy policy in the context of the Lisbon Treaty. What is at stake here for Europe at this (to put it mildly) difficult time, is its chance to play a leading role in the transition towards energy systems that are not only sustainable but also competitive and reliable.
