In this Brussels Briefing on Energy, Hughes Belin provides an overview of the latest EU energy policy developments for October and November 2015.

viEUws's insight:

Just under a month before the Commissioner Maroš Šefčovič’s State of the Energy Union address on 18 November, EU energy policymakers have a lot on their plates. The Commission has signed a €300 million grant agreement on a gas pipeline between Poland and Lithuania, and it’s set to publish its strategy on liquefied natural gas early next year.

Energy journalist Hughes Belin reports that a consultation on redesigning the electricity market is now over. The Commission’s also cleared British plans to charge nuclear plants, rather than consumers, for the safe disposal of nuclear waste.

Commissioners have postponed a paper on the new illustrative nuclear programme (PINC) until early 2016, and launched a platform for cooperation on regional electricity markets in the Mediterranean. On 27 November, the EU and Norway are holding a conference on energy cooperation.

Despite rising tensions, Europe to remain Russia's main gas customer

Tatiana Mitrova, Head of Oil & Gas Department at the Energy Research Institute, analyses the consequences of troubled EU-Russia relations for energy trade.
viEUws's insight:

Tatiana Mitrova, Head of the Oil & Gas Department at the Energy Research Institute in Moscow, joins Hughes Belin to analyse the consequences of troubled EU-Russia relations for energy trade.

Even though Mitrova believes that EU sanctions are “not seriously affecting operations in the Russian gas and oil industry”, she describes the current situation as a “perfect storm.” “All negative factors coincide” and can severely undermine gas trade between Russia and the European Union.

According to Mitrova these factors include: Russia’s decision to shift gas eastward, the newly issued European Energy Union strategy, the failure to resolve the South Stream dispute, as well as the difficult political and geopolitical climate.

EU Energy Union - A serious test for European integration

EU Energy Union - A serious test for European integration | EU Energy | Scoop.it
In focus: prospects of the Energy Union strategy and its governance structure, as well as the barriers that need to be overcome for Energy Union to succeed.
viEUws's insight:

Leading energy journalist Hughes Belin investigates the prospects of the Energy Union strategy and its governance structure, ahead of the European Commission’s official presentation on 25 February.

 

The initial concept of the Energy Union is based on five key dimensions:

1. Supply Security
2. Internal Market
3. Energy Efficiency
4. Decarbonisation
5. Research & Innovation

 

However, the governance system of the Energy Union remains unresolved. It is a quantum leap for EU integration, with the Member States working together in solidarity towards an energy transition to a low-carbon economy. But there are several barriers to overcome, which make the governance challenge crucial for the success or the failure of the Energy Union.

 

Featuring statements by Maroš Šefčovič, Vice President for Energy Union, Jean-Arnold Vinois, Adviser on Energy Policy at the Notre Europe-Jacques Delors Institute and a co-author of a report on the Energy Union, and André Merlin, President of Medgrid and former President of CIGRE (International Council on Large Electric Systems).

VIDEO: EU Energy Briefing:  Gas Package, PINC, Heating & Cooling, Liquefied Natural Gas | EU Energy | Scoop.it
Hughes Belin unveils the latest EU Energy developments for the month of February 2016.
viEUws's insight:

On Tuesday 16 February, the Commission adopted its sustainable energy security package, putting the Energy Union to its first real test on two important legislative proposals that seek to invert the balance of power between institutions and Member States. On the one hand, the Commission  wants to update existing laws on its inspection power over the so-called intergovernmental energy agreements, or IGAs. On the other hand, the Commission is set to revise a 2010 regulation on the security of gas supply. The implications of the latter are twofold: energy security will be thought at the regional level and a solidarity principle will apply in case of a gas supply crisis.

In other news, the Commission issued a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) strategy destined to water down the effects of the decline of EU gas production, making LNG the main backup plan for the Union in the event of a supply disruption. Meanwhile, the Heating & Cooling strategy is again on the Commission’s table – hopes are high that the new strategy will help boost the efficiency of related equipment in EU households, stimulate the use of renewables and minimize the waste of heat in industrial processes. Finally, the Commission delayed the publication of its Nuclear Illustrative Programme (PINC). Hughes Belin, leading energy journalist, has the story.

Overview of the Top 5 Energy priorities that will be discussed by the European institutions under the Dutch EU Presidency.
viEUws's insight:

In this special briefing, leading energy journalist Hughes Belin picks out the top 5 energy issues that will be discussed by the European institutions under the Dutch Presidency of the Council of the European Union:

– In February, the Commission is due to launch a review of the regulation on security of gas supply and of its sister regulation on security of electricity supply. The EU Executive will also review the EU’s information exchange mechanism for intergovernmental agreements on energy, publish a strategy for LNG and Storage, and a  strategy for Heating & Cooling.

– The EU is currently revising its energy labelling directive. Industry and energy MEPs will not agree on a position before the 24th of May at the earliest.

– The Dutch Presidency will address the potential of regional cooperation on energy in the North Sea at a High-Level meeting on the 4th of February and will hold an informal energy Council in Amsterdam on the 10th and 11th of April, focused on electricity market design.

– The Commission intends to publish a new ‘Nuclear Illustrative Programme for the Community’, or PINC in February.

– The Commission is working on updating its 2050 energy forecasts during the first half-year of 2016. It is also working on updating its report on energy prices and costs. Meanwhile, work has just started on revising the collection ofelectricity and gas price statistics.

VIDEO: EU Briefing on Energy: State of the Energy Union, Internal Electricity market, Energy Council | EU Energy | Scoop.it
Hughes Belin unveils the latest EU Energy developments for the months of November and December 2015.
viEUws's insight:

The first State of the Energy Union report was the highlight of November, and the internal energy market raises much criticism. The Commission points out, amongst others, the lack of competition. 2016, ‘a year of delivery’ sounds, however, more promising since the Commission is to launch a raft of proposals on: the electricity market design; a new energy price report; drafts for climate and energy national plans templates, to name a few.

Meanwhile, the Energy Council has just adopted conclusions on a governance plan for the Energy Union and also agreed on implementing the new OECD’s informal rules on coal export credits. Russia and Ukraine are still at odds with each other on gas deliveries.

Finally, in brief, the Nordstream II is still at the core of a heated debate in the EU, Luxembourg has joined Austria in its complaint at the ECJ against Hinkley Point C, and the Commission launched infringement proceedings against Hungary for alleged illegal aids in financing its new nuclear project Paks II. Hughes Belin, leading energy journalist, has the story.
