Based on an innovative theoretical framework combining theories of EU policymaking, negotiation and implementation, this comprehensive book examines EU climate and energy policies from the early 1990s until the adoption of new policies for 2030. The authors investigate how the linking of climate and energy concerns in policy packages has facilitated agreement among EU leaders with very different policy ambitions. Employing in-depth studies from a diverse range of energy-economic countries, the book also explores the impact of domestic policy implementation experiences on the 2030 climate and energy policy framework and the Energy Union initiative. Social scientists and researchers in EU climate and energy policies will find the new empirical data and theoretical approach useful to their work. Students of the social sciences and politics will also benefit from the accessible overview of EU climate and energy policy development. This book will also be of interest to private and public decision-makers looking for explanations for the causes and consequences of EU climate and energy policy development.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`In Europe, climate and energy policies have become inextricably intertwined in the minds of politicians, businesses and civil society organizations. This ambitious book offers a 360 degree analysis of the interlinking strategies designed and employed by policymakers at the EU level and in critically important member-states. In doing so it offers a richly textured answer to a puzzle that has always perplexed analysts: how and why do states manage to adopt policies that are significantly at odds with the preferences of the least ambitious?' -- Andrew Jordan, Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, University of East Anglia, UK
`This book not only provides an in-depth analysis of the recent development of EU climate and energy policy from the climate and energy package for 2020 to the climate and energy policy framework for 2030, it is also noteworthy for its skilful and innovative combination of EU and member-state level analysis across a full policy cycle covering policy initiation, decision-making, implementation and policy reform. Recommended reading!' -- Sebastian Oberthur, Vrije Universiteit Brussels, Belgium
`Linking EU Climate and Energy Policies should be read by all who are interested in climate and energy policy and governance.' -- Global Environmental Politics
`This book is one that all scholars, students and citizens with any interest in EU environmental and energy politics will benefit from reading and re-reading.' -- Local Environment
