Abstract

As described in the Commission's Green Paper on a European strategy for sustainable, competitive and secure energy, Europe has entered into a new energy era. The new energy landscape of the 21st century 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.
Europe's energy economy, and that of the World, is currently on a pathway that is not sustainable. This must change. Set against the backdrop of a growing global demand for energy to power economic development and growth, we are faced with a huge challenge. Sustainable, competitive and secure energy has to become one of the basic pillars of our daily life.
