Cooperation and Integration: Recommendations for Transatlantic Energy Security

Stetsenko, Andrei

"This paper aims to address this issue by analyzing the roots and effects of the disunity of European energy markets, noting the U.S. interest in an integrated, reformed European energy market, outlining policies that mitigate dependence on imported energy, providing two case studies which illustrate the drawbacks of current policy and potential of new proposals, and finally suggesting three major platforms of reform to be pursued jointly by the United States and the European Union. I argue that a European Union featuring a more competitive private energy market operating in the context of robust institutional oversight would enjoy significantly greater commercial and diplomatic leverage – particularly with regards to supplier states such as Russia."--from pages 71-72
