This path-breaking book explores the new European energy policy, highlighting the significance of environmental policy concerns, instruments, and objectives vis-a-vis competing security and market dimensions in order to achieve an all-embracing EU energy policy perspective for the future. While the past years have witnessed unprecedented development of EU energy policy, the understanding of this process has lagged behind. Alongside the scarce literature on this emergent policy, there is also a gap regarding the attention paid to its different components. The study stems from the perception of a mismatch between the valuable debate that certain dimensions of energy policy - namely, energy security and the market and competition framework - have triggered and the neglect of its environmental and climate change dimensions. European Energy Policy will prove to be insightful for academics and postgraduate students interested in European integration, political science, international relations, public policy and environmental science. Energy stakeholders and governmental policymakers will also find plenty of invaluable information in this enriching resource.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`This book provides an accessible introduction for any scholar looking to learn more about how Europe is facing up to the challenges of the future.' -- Peter Kirby-Harris, Political Studies
`The book is well suited for those within the energy industry who have little knowledge of EU environmental issues and which to learn how these affect EU energy policies. While this is not an introductory book, it is also suitable for students learning about energy or environmental issues in Europe.' -- K. Talus, Oil, Gas and Energy Law Intelligence
`This book analyses a highly important topic. It is based on a comprehensive and empirically rich assessment of European energy policy, including both internal and external determinants. Its encompassing approach and the thoughtful combination of different analytical perspectives makes the book an important and fresh contribution to the field.' -- Christoph Knill, University of Konstanz, Germany
`Energy was one of the founding pillars of European integration, while environmental concerns have become an identity sign of today's European Union energy policy. However, notwithstanding the obvious links between both issues, little attention has been devoted to the complex relationship between the EU's environmental performance and the Europeanization of its energy policy. This book, carefully edited by Morata and Solorio, has come to fill this gap becoming a "must" to understand the interactions between these two fundamental drivers of EU policies.' -- Jose Maria Marin-Quemada, Universidad Nacional de Educacion a Distancia, and Member of the Governing Council of the Spanish Central Bank, Spain
`This book presents an in-depth analysis of the `emergent' European energy policy. . . the book fills a significant gap in the literature on European studies as well as energy and environmental studies.' -- Serhan Unal, Journal of Contemporary European Studies
