On July 15, the European Commission released an Energy and Climate Summer Package aimed at modernising Europe’s energy system. The package is a critical element of the European Energy Union strategy, launched last February by the new appointed Commission. The Energy Union strategy intends to create a fully-integrated energy market, to enhance security of energy supplies, to promote energy efficiency, to foster CO2 emissions reduction and to boost energy research and innovation.
