1 DG Energy and Transport, European Commission Fabrizio Barbaso 16/04/2008 EU ENERGY SECURITY STRATEGIES ARF Energy Security Seminar EUROPEAN COMMISSION

2 | 2 EU Energy Security Strategies EU energy mix: business as usual is not sustainable 2005 Import dependency Energy demand and carbon intensity ~ 80% fossil fuel SOURCE: Eurostat.

3 | 3 EU Energy Security Strategies SOURCE: European Commission, Eurostat EU27 production decreasing -Import by 2010 – 62% -Import by 2020 – 75-80% EU-27 origin of gas

4 | 4 EU Energy Security Strategies Integrated climate and energy policy International Dialogue European stock management (oil/gas) Refining capacity and energy storage Diversification FULLYBALANCEDINTEGRATEDAND MUTUALLY REINFORCED Sustainable Development Renewable energy Energy efficiency Nuclear Research and innovation Emission trading Competitiveness Internal Market Interconnections (Trans-European networks) European electricity and gas network Research and innovation Clean coal Carbon sequestration Alternative fuels Energy efficiency Nuclear Security of supply

5 | 5 EU Energy Security Strategies Key drivers by 2020 By % EFFICIENCY BIO-FUELS Min 10% binding ELECTRICITY MS binding choice HEATING & COOLING MS binding choice By 2020 binding 20% RENEWABLES in final energy consumption at EU level NATIONAL TARGETS & ACTION PLANS By % EU GHG

6 | 6 EU Energy Security Strategies Elements for security of supply. Internal market. Solidarity. Infrastructure development. Diversification of sources and supply routes. Strong measures to improve energy efficiency. A common international energy policy

7 | 7 EU Energy Security Strategies Open and transparent internal energy market. 3 rd Internal Energy Market in electricity and gas package, September Main shortcomings: » Lack of TSO cooperation » Regulatory gas » Lack of interconnections. Proposed solutions: » Effective unbundling » TSO cooperation » European Agency for Regulatory Cooperation » Solidarity arrangements

8 | 8 EU Energy Security Strategies Solidarity in security of supply. Gas Coordination Group. Oil Supply Group. Network of Energy Security Correspondents. Strategic stocks (oil and gas): revision of oil stocks directive to be tabled end 2008; study on gas storage to start soon. Effective mechanisms for energy crisis management: new proposals. Electricity Interconnections

9 | 9 EU Energy Security Strategies Infrastructure development. Continuous identification of missing infrastructure. European coordinators for 4 priority projects: » Power-Link Germany, Poland, Lithuania » Connections to off-shore wind power, Northern Europe » Electricity interconnections France-Spain » Nabucco pipeline. TEN-E projects of European interest. Way forward on strategic energy networks to be addressed in the 2 nd Strategic Energy Review, end 2008

10 | 10 EU Energy Security Strategies Electricity projects of European interest

11 | 11 EU Energy Security Strategies Priority projects for natural gas

12 | 12 EU Energy Security Strategies Diversifying energy sources. Diversifying supply sources, routes and producers (LNG in gas). Renewable energy proposals – 20% target by Biofuels use in transport - 10% Strategic Energy Technology Plan: November 2007 » 6 priority Industrial Initiatives: second generation bio- fuels, large scale offshore wind, smart electricity grid, photovoltaic electricity, fourth generation fission nuclear reactors, sustainable coal and gas technologies, particularly carbon capture and storage

13 | 13 EU Energy Security Strategies Realising the potential of energy efficiency. Energy Efficiency Action Plan - adopted on 19 October 2006, saving 20% energy by Actions in transport, appliances, buildings, heat and electricity generation, transmission and distribution. On international level – International Partnership for Energy Efficiency Cooperation

14 | 14 EU Energy Security Strategies International energy policy. Cooperation with key energy producers, transit countries, EU neighbours: Russia, Central Asia, Ukraine, Mediterranean, OPEC, etc.. Relations with consumer countries in international, regional and bilateral context: IEA, USA, China, India, Japan, Africa-Europe Partnership, and others. International negotiations, agreements, partnerships on energy, climate, trade and technology: post-2012, Major Emitters, ECT, IPEEC, M2M, CSLF,...

15 | 15 EU Energy Security Strategies International energy policy. A new EU-ASEAN Senior Officials Dialogue on Energy Cooperation - a unique region-to-region format. Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) format – energy security, climate change as new topics for discussion. 1 st ASEM Ministerial Conference on Energy Security – 10 October 2008 in Brussels
