A common EU energy policy has evolved around the common objective of ensuring the uninterrupted physical availability of energy products and services on the market, at a price which is affordable for all consumers (private and industrial), while contributing to the EU’s wider social and climate goals. The central goals for energy policy (security of supply, competitiveness, and sustainability) are now laid down in the Lisbon Treaty. This spells out clearly what is expected from Europe in the energy area.

 The "Energy 2020 strategy" provides a solid and ambitious European framework for energy policy, defines the energy priorities for the next ten years and sets out the action to be taken.

The EU’s "Energy Roadmap 2050" demonstrates the Union’s commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions to 80-95% below 1990 levels by 2050. The Energy Roadmap 2050 is the basis for developing a long-term European framework together with all stakeholders.
