Loyola de palacio series on European energy policy


The main results from the research project Coordinating Energy Security in Supply Activities are reported by engineers, economists, and other researchers. The overall conclusion is that a sustainable energy policy, more competition, and better regulation will increase global welfare. Taking the three energy sources in turn, the component studies consider such aspects as seeking competition and supply security in natural gas in the US and Europe, worsening geopolitics and increasing global competition for liquified natural gas, contractual and financial arrangements for new nuclear investment in liberalized markets, lessons from British Energy on nuclear power and deregulated electricity markets, hydrogen from renewables, and the contributions of the hydrogen transition to the goals of the European Union energy and climate policy.
