About this book

This edited collection focuses on the impact of the changing global distribution of power on the EU's energy policy and ability to project its approach to energy-related issues abroad. It maps the EU's changing position on global energy, the impact of various factors on its energy policy, and its relations with Russia, China, the USA and Brazil.

Reviews

"Concrete, conscientious, clear - this tour d'horizon of Europe's nodal role in the world's energy networks is all of those things. Instead of the usual highfalutin' speculations about crises, clashes and civilisational wars, we are treated to a multi-perspectival summing up of a central issue. The tension between Europe's integrational approach and the jealous guarding of sovereignty that characterises most of the other parties emerges as a major theme, but the emphasis is on the nitty gritty of everyday cooperation. There is plenty of caviar for the initiated here, but first and foremost this is an authoritative summing up." - Iver Neumann, London School of Economics, UK

"A novel, original compendium featuring some of the world's best thinkers on topics ranging from energy policy and climate change to environmental politics and global governance. Important reading for those wishing to better understand the future role the European Union will play in shaping regional and global energy security, as well as energy geopolitics, technological trends, and the rise of new institutional actors." - Benjamin K. Sovacool, Aarhus University, Denmark

"This is an important and timely book that brings together an exceptional team of authors to examine the EU's energy and environmental governance challenges from the inside out. The book starts by asking the question what is EU energy policy? The critical analysis that follows examines the internal contradictions with the EU energy and climate strategy that is being conducted in an increasingly competitive and complex world. The authors examine how the EU as a supranational body seeks to shape a global energy landscape that is undergoing tectonic shifts as new centres of influence emerge and old partners and adversaries re-establish themselves as troublemakers, competitors and partners. The book presents an essential guide to how the EU is seeking to create a leadership role for itself at a time when its economic strength is badly depleted and its political influence challenged." - Mike Bradshaw, Warwick Business School, UK

"This book has the merit of being very timely, and very ambitious, as it analyses the launch of the EU Energy Union, the total revamping of energy markets with the emergence of new producers, consumers, and forms of energy, and the EU's role in the changing geopolitics of energy." - Anne Marie Le Gloannec, CERI-Sciences Po, France
