The Energy Union project has a key novelty: the willingness to put citizens and consumers at the centre of EU energy policy making as well as the EU energy system, and in particular the EU electricity system.
This synthesis by Thomas Pellerin-Carlin, research fellow at the Jacques Delors Institute, explores the implicationsof such key novelty:
– How can the new electricity market lead to consumer empowerement?
– How can consumer behaviour benefit european energy security?
– What does the “Energy Efficiency First” principle imply?
