Sustainable, secure and affordable energy for Europeans
Lighting, heating, transport, industrial output: energy is vital for essential day-to-day services, without which we and our businesses cannot function. Europe’s stocks of fossil fuels (oil, gas and coal) will not, however, last forever. They need to be judiciously managed while we look into new sources of energy. Europe is consuming, and importing, increasing quantities of energy. EU countries are well aware of the advantages of coordinated action in this highly strategic field. This has led to common rules throughout Europe and a pooling of Europe’s efforts to secure the energy that it needs... at an affordable price, while generating the least possible pollution. This publication is a part of a series that explains what the EU does in different policy areas, why the EU is involved and what the results are.
