The main aims of the energy policy of the European Union (EU) are 1) to establish a European energy system that is sustainable (particularly with respect to reducing greenhouse-gas emissions) and enhances Europe's competitiveness and 2) to improve the security of energy supplies to Europe's 500 million inhabitants. A key element of Europe's strategies to achieve these aims is to establish a more integrated energy system in which there is a well-connected and competitive market, particularly for gas and electricity. A pan-European energy infrastructure (analogous to those in place in other sectors of long-term public interest, such as telecommunications and transport) is seen as an essential enabler.
