EU Commission Strategic Energy Review

The Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) said that the Prime Minister strongly welcomed the statement by the EU Commission today on its strategic Energy communication and climate change review. There was a direct line between today’s announcement and the Hampton Court summit which we held in October 2005, as well as Gleneagles in July 2005 and the joint letter that the Prime Minister had published with the Prime Minister of Holland at the Lahkti summit last Autumn. What we particularly welcomed was the emphasis that the EU Commission put on not just security of energy supply, but also, liberalisation of the European energy market, as well as the measures that it announced and supported on climate change and energy efficiency. The PMOS said that what this could lead to was further progress being made at the EU spring Council in March, with that leading onto G8+5 discussions of a post-2012 framework post-Kyoto in July. It was a very welcome development.
