Abstract of the Student #Thesis: Alberto Rodriguez Dominguez

Europe is facing turbulent times politically, economically, and socially. Energy resource management and securing a stable energy supply are critical across these domains and affect the entire EU population. Ensuring Europe's energy future is paramount, particularly in light of global demand from emerging economies like China and India, persistent instability in energy-producing regions, and Russia's use of energy as a political tool. These issues have heightened EU concerns, prompting initial responses, yet much work remains. This will likely be a major focus in the next phase of European integration.

This document analyzes the development of an external energy policy at the EU level, key external relationships (such as those with Russia, North Africa, and the Middle East), and the diversification of energy sources. The methodology primarily involves PEST and SWOT analyses, examining the main strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats from technical, social, and economic perspectives. Additionally, it includes a quantitative analysis of energy security in the EU.

Key recommendations to ensure a feasible and stable mid-term energy context include:

  1. Improving Flexibility for Energy Investors: This aligns with meeting commitments in various international agreements.

  2. Integrating National and Regional Energy Systems: Enhancing the interconnectedness of energy systems across Europe.

  3. Enhancing EU Competitiveness Worldwide: Achieving this through coordinated actions at the EU level.

  4. Developing New Energy Fields: Investing in and promoting new energy sources, such as bio-energy.

These measures are crucial for Europe to secure its energy future and maintain stability across political, economic, and social spheres.
