Green Paper: A European Strategy for Sustainable, Competitive and Secure Energy {SEC(2006) 317}, COM(2006) 105 final

Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV

Abstract

This is the new energy landscape of the 21st century. It is one in which the world's economic regions are dependent on each other for ensuring energy security and stable economic conditions, and for ensuring effective action against climate change.
The effects of this landscape are felt directly by everyone. Access to energy is fundamental to the daily lives of every European. Our citizens are affected by higher prices, threats to the security of energy supply and changes to Europe's climate. Sustainable, competitive and secure energy is one of the basic pillars of our daily life.
This landscape requires a common European response. Heads of State and Government, at their summits in October and December 2005, recognised this and asked the Commission to take this forward. Recent events have underlined that this challenge must be met. An approach based solely on 25 individual energy policies is not enough.
