EU Market Integration
The European Union has adopted an Energy Union Framework Strategy which targets five key policy areas:
- Supply security
- A fully integrated internal energy market
- Energy efficiency
- Climate action
- Research and innovation
To achieve these goals will require a transformation of Europe’s electricity system, including investment in infrastructure that connects the electricity networks together and the creation of a single European electricity market. This will make energy flow more easily, improve energy security, lessen the dependency on imports and prepare networks for increasing levels of renewable energy.
