2003 Annual Energy and Transport Review

Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

When it comes to the energy and transport sectors, the three most important factors for the European Union's competitiveness as well as for its citizens' welfare are:
- The level and stability of electricity prices to households, commerce and industry, coupled with the security of supply of other fuels (whose prices are largely determined in international markets).
- A dynamic and competitive transport sector in air, road and short sea shipping, combined with the continuing improvement of the rail system for freight and passengers, including high-speed systems.
- The level of externalities (emissions, accidents, fatalities, and consequences of the nuclear cycle) and the measures used to prevent and reduce them.
This publication includes a CD-ROM with global energy balances and indicators for the 25 EU Member States and its main trading partners.
