EU energy policy

Delivering secure, sustainable and affordable energy for European citizens and businesses.


Reducing energy consumption and achieving energy savings is essential to deliver the European Green Deal.

Energy from renewable sources reduces greenhouse gas emissions and lowers our dependence on imported fossil fuels.

The EU's integrated internal energy market helps to keep energy affordable and guarantee secure supplies.

The EU's strategy for secure, competitive, and sustainable energy.

A modern energy infrastructure, connecting markets and regions, is crucial to meet the EU’s energy and climate goals.

The EU works to ensure that energy supplies from abroad are secure and affordable.

Innovation in low-carbon and clean energy technologies are essential to fulfil the EU’s energy union strategy.

EU programmes, calls for tenders and private-public initiatives are available to finance energy projects.

The EU aims to ensure safe and secure use of civil nuclear energy, which in 2022 generated almost 22% of EUs electricity.

Our energy systems need to be sufficiently flexible to facilitate cross-border, cross-sector innovation and investment.
