Amid escalating tension with Russia over Ukraine, Brussels centres on shale gas and non-Russian gas imports in its new energy security strategy unveiled in May this year. However, I cast great doubt that either the crisis is being used as a pretext to re-carbonise Europe’s energy sector, or the strategy document deplorably reflects how...

The growing uncertainties over the crisis in Ukraine show once again all the limits of Europe’s energy dependency. According to Eurostat, about one third of the EU’s total crude oil (34.5%) and natural gas (31.5%) imports in 2010 originated from Russia.

The global energy and environment challenges cannot be addressed through a local, regional, or even a national approach. They require a global outlook and a much broader vision, a Global Renewable Energy Grid [GREG]. A high voltage direct current [HVDC] transmission system must be built to serve as the bulk electrical power transport medium, with...
