European Energy Security Strategy

A strategy introduced in 2014, designed to reduce the European Union’s dependency on energy imports and so increase the stability and abundance of energy in the EU. Because more than half of the EU’s energy is imported, the EU could be vulnerable to supply disruptions if a political or commercial dispute or infrastructure failure were to occur. The strategy includes both short-term measures (e.g., simulating and preparing for supply disruptions) and long-term measures (e.g., increasing energy efficiency and production, improving infrastructure, and creating a unified voice when dealing with non-EU countries).
