Three Es on Energy EU and Emissions

EU Flags

Published May 23, 2013

The emphasis on climate and energy prices has risen it ugly head to determine what the EU will do in regards to energy competitiveness. This is not only an EU problem but a situation of the west. The instrumental positioning of energy in tandem with plans to reduce its carbon output is struggle to select the best energy source for the future which may be a heavy mix of solutions. The focus on the “EU summit set to turn climate agenda upside down” met with conversation from utility and government to determine best practices and strategy.

Euractive post of the “Europe’s plan to decarbonise its economy by 2050 could be turned on its head at a summit today (22 May) if EU heads of state and government sign off on measures prioritising industrial competitiveness over climate change. The draft text says that EU policy must ensure “competitive” energy prices, and declares it “crucial” that Europe diversify its energy supply and develop “indigenous energy resources” – a reference to renewable energies, but also coal, nuclear power and shale gas.”

The issue among the great advocators is what source is viable based on positionality. The energy mix question is a highly dynamic situation that all nations will squarely have to face to justify and determine the role of energy in the infrastructure of their nation. The next step is to allocate and place legislation to secure those plans hold to assess fitness and production.

“One high-profile German MEP Holger Krahmer (ALDE), hailed the end of “climate hysteria” in a jubilant press statement. For the first time, rising energy costs and the declining competitiveness of the European economy will be rated higher than obviously unenforceable global climate change ambitions,” he said.”

Is the heat of climate over or just beginning in a new form. The present Sooth Sayers may comment but history will tell.

“The shift in emphasis by European leaders follows the rejection of a proposed reform of the EU’s depressed Emissions Trading System (ETS), pushed by the Climate Commissioner Connie Hedegaard, which sought to boost CO2 prices. The measure had been heavily resisted by energy-intensive industries and the business employers’ federation, BusinessEurope, which argued against artificially raising carbon prices – and therefore energy costs – in a slow economy.”

The necessary action steps to energy policy is yet to be determined as wealth and power  are integral to the conversation. As the world strives for energy development the role of politics will supersede. The investment in energy is not a passing fancy but a critical journey for the future nation states.
