EU, energy at the heart of the conference on the State of the Union
President Mattarella: “Energy challenge cannot be faced by individual countries”
“ None of the great challenges that our continent is currently facing may be addressed by any member state of the Union individually.” President of the Italian Republic, Sergio Mattarella, said this on Thursday when opening conference “the State of the Union,” organized in Florence by the European University Institute.
The challenges that are waiting ahead of the EU, Mattarella mentioned those relating to “the energy, the climate change and the digital revolution,” underlining that the EU “is pursuing a policy of independence and quality for the energy plan that will make Europe less dependent on specific suppliers.”
The European Commission's Vice-President for the Energy Union, Maros Sefcovic, shares this opinion too. “The EU’s energy security has improved compared to a few years ago,” stated Sefcovic during the Friday’s session on the “Climate change and energy transition.”
However, Sefcovic pointed out to the need to “show that the transition works for all: it is one of the crucial missions of the Energy Union, which is particularly important in the present political situation.”
