REPowerEU: Energy Security Will Only Be Achieved Through Energy Shifting

EASE welcomes the European Commission’s REPowerEU, but energy security will only be achieved through energy shifting. The Russian Invasion of Ukraine has brought the case for clean energy and security of supply to the forefront of the political discussion. With the EU importing 90% of its gas consumption, 40% of which originating from Russia, the European Commission is seeking diversification of gas supply as a mean to secure energy independence.
