My aim for this presentation today, is to give you a broad overview of the diverse challenges the energy sector in Europe is confronted with today and the various policy approaches of the European Union in this respect. In order to illustrate the European perspective on energy policy, part one of my presentation will illustrate important challenges European countries have to face, and the respective role of the European Union in developing policy responses. The second part of my presentation will deal with the four major policy approaches in this field: the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, the promotion of energy efficiency, the development of renewable sources of energy, and finally, the necessary adaptation of the energy infrastructure.
