EU ENERGY POLICY

According to the Lisbon Treaty, EU energy policy will "ensure the functioning of the energy market", "ensure security of energy supply in the Union", "promote the interconnection of energy networks" and "promote energy efficiency and energy saving, and the development of new and renewable forms of energy". The EU energy policy has accordingly been shaped around three major strategic pillars:
 

- Security of supply
- Market competitiveness
- Environment protection and climate change
 

More recently, the theme of industrial competitiveness emerged as a fourth pillar, out of concern for the ability of EU-based large energy consumers to withstand global competition, against the background of relatively high energy prices.
