Summary
Energy is one of the major international political issues of the twenty-first century and has been a foundation of the European integration project. For over sixty years European states have worked towards achieving comprehensive energy security by tackling the illusive policy triad of fair competition, security of supply, and environmental sustainability. In spite of the undoubted progress, however, many obstacles still remain. Through an analysis of the European Union's regional and external energy policy, the text systematically addresses how the EU's energy agenda influences contemporary developments in energy politics. It reveals the protracted struggle by its now twenty-eight member states to integrate national energy markets and to navigate international energy politics whilst responding to changing environmental norms. Future challenges for the EU are considered, from the political tension with traditional oil suppliers in Russia and the Middle East, through its stance on fracking, to its targets for climate change and renewable resources. Accessible and as useful to those with no prior knowledge as to those well versed in EU energy policy, this is the ideal text for those who want to understand how and in what form this key political actor develops energy policy and to comprehend its far-reaching impact.--
