Sami Andoura, senior research fellow on European Energy Policy, is quoted on "Poland hopes Tusk will create an EU Energy Union", on10 september 2014.


Asked to comment on the project for an Energy Union, Samy Andoura, Senior Research Fellow at Jacques Delors’ institute ‘Notre Europe’ said that the main issue was that it should be built as a community project, and not as an intergovernmental one. This means that the decision-making for the proposed project should be entrusted to the Union’s institution, and not stay with the governments, he stressed.

Andoura, who is Professor and Chairholder of the European Energy Policy Chair at the College of Europe in Bruges, said that what matters is to achieve a common energy policy, with sufficiently clear and ambitious objectives, with effective instruments and a governance that allows to integrate all actors and to make them advance in a coordinated way and in the same direction.

This, he adds, implies the recourse to the community method, dear to Jacques Delors.

“The Energy Union was proposed by Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk as a political idea about the future of the EU, but which also concern issues of typical Polish nature. Today the real challenge for Mr. Tusk is to take the necessary height and distance to transform its position into a real European project in all its diversity”, he said.

Notre Europe will publish a report based on the ideas of Jacques Delors on the matter in November.
