Summary
The European Union (EU) faces critical challenges in energy policy making, the most pressing of which are how to achieve the deep greenhouse gas reductions promised at the December 2015 UN Conference of the Parties in Paris, and how this effort can be coordinated with already existing policies. Energy policy is primarily a member state responsibility, and policy makers need an overarching view of the main issues in energy policy and their interaction with environmental policies. This book offers concise introductions to some of the major issues as well as practical suggestions for policy making. The contributions discuss reforms to the EU Emmissions Trading System (ETS), the world's largest carbon market; ways to improve the operation and interpretation of EU's power grids, in terms of both supply and demand; changes to the EU's Energy Directive, which sets tax floors for fuels outside the ETS; the coordination of climate policies to promote renewables and energy efficiency; research into clean technology; challenges to shale gas development; and transportation policy and the need for action on such externalities as traffic congestion. Finally, the contributors consider obstacles to reform, including its potential effects on vulnerable households and energy-intensive industries
