The European Energy Union is discussed at the University of Dundee

On 5 June 2018, the University of Dundee hosted a policy workshop titled - Towards the European Energy Union; In search of principles. The event was hosted by the University’s Centre for Energy, Petroleum and Mineral Law and Policy.

The topic explored the principles defining the future trajectory of the European Energy Union. It included relevant discussions about innovation, efficiency and legal certainty. The EU has vested interest in the integration of energy markets, climate action and the overarching normative principles of justice and solidarity as critical components to the energy outlook for the future. 

Energy Charter Secretary-General, Dr Urban Rusnák presented on the importance of cooperation between the EU and non-EU actors. He highlighted that in today’s globalised world no energy policy could function in isolation. The Energy Charter can be viewed as a valuable tool to bridge the gap and foster cooperation between EU and non-EU states setting up the foundation for global energy governance. 

The Energy Charter Secretariat and the University of Dundee has a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to promote cooperation between the two institutions.
