  • 21 Nov 2014 Energy Union, interconnectivity, energy mix: the main tools to improve EU's energy security

    Europe is highly dependent on its energy resources. In order to increase the EU's energy security a genuine Energy Union is needed as well as major investments in infrastructure to provide full interconnectivity between Member States. Renewable energy remains an important part of the energy mix; however further development of renewables should take more account of the profitability of such projects, final energy price and its impact on jobs and R&D development. These are the main conclusions of the conference entitled "Securing essential imports for the EU – energy: new opportunities or new threats?" that took place on 14 November in Zagreb.
