Energy Union is a policy framework proposed by the European Commission based on long-established objectives of EU energy policy, namely security of supply, sustainability and competitiveness. The Energy Union aims at furthering integration and coordination of Member States on five dimensions:

  • Energy security, solidarity and trust;
  • the internal energy market;
  • energy efficiency as a contribution to the moderation of energy demand;
  • decarbonisation of the economy and
  • research, innovation and competitiveness.

The implementation of the Energy Union strategy with a forward looking climate change policy was launched as one of the political priorities of the Juncker Commission in February 2015. It will allow a free flow of energy across borders and a secure supply in every EU country through one unique internal energy market.
