Think Energy explain the EU Energy Policy Shake-up

The EU have signalled a new urgency in tackling the looming problems of climate change and energy security. The new EU President- elect Jean-Claude Juncker has made two recent appointments in these areas.

The former Slovenian P.M. Alenka Bratusek has been appointed to the new position of Vice-President for Energy Union Department. Her brief is to deliver a single market and to set binding 2030 climate change targets. As part of the same reshuffle, Spain's former environment minister, Miguel Arias Canete, has been given the newly merged role of Energy and Climate Action Commissioner. Although it is understood that the Energy and Climate Change Departments will remain separate for the present time. It is hoped that the newly appointed commissioners will vigorously pursue a green economy.
